The Commonwealth of Novagentum is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.485 billion Novagentumians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanderson. The average income tax rate is 85.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Novagentumian economy, worth 257 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 103,718 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, frat-house partying has become the national pastime, group hugs break out during floor votes, and pet owners must make a payment if their charges leave a deposit. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Novagentum's national animal is the Orangutan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Novagentum is ranked 11,661st in the world and 372nd in the South Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 83.72 Years.
