The People's Republic of Novopangaea is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Protector with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 10.471 billion Novopangaeans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of URBS MAGNA. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Novopangaean economy, worth a remarkable 2,531 trillion CUS 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 241,782 CUS, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

Left-wing militias train children how to properly burn down banks, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, EULAs remind customers that "Private Mode" is a browser setting rather than a promise, and the "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Novopangaea's national animal is the axolotl, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Novopangaea is ranked 130,692nd in the world and 375th in The Communist Bloc for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -3.54 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
