The Endless Conflict of Novia Max Peondtopia is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Max but not that one with an iron fist, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.001 billion Novia Max Peondtopians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government prioritizes Administration, with Industry, Defense, and Law & Order also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Klamath. The average income tax rate is 62.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Novia Max Peondtopian economy, worth a remarkable 1,121 trillion lire a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 160,236 lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Surfers ride tsunamis of record height and toxicity, pulling weeds is seen as a threat to national security, relatives of recent award winners find their trophies make stylish urns, and the tomato-covered corpses that decorate the nation's cities are a favourite amongst morbid tourists. Crime is a problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Novia Max Peondtopia's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Division.

Novia Max Peondtopia is ranked 996th in the world and 1st in King of the Hill for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 28,079.27 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
