The Allied States of Novoblupolia is a very large, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 130 million Novoblupolians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Industry, and Education. The average income tax rate is 17.9%.

The powerhouse Novoblupolian economy, worth 11.3 trillion Polimarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Average income is 86,660 Polimarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

The Violetist community celebrates bombshells being dropped on Novoblupolia, bizarre-looking creatures called 'rabbitdogs' dominate wildlife preserves, economists have been named Invertebrates of the Year, and saying "don't do anything that Leader wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal. Crime is totally unknown. Novoblupolia's national animal is the rabbit, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Novoblupolia is ranked 24,388th in the world and 618th in the Pacific for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 12,894.11 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
