The Confederacy of Novostia is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 644 million Novostians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novisbourg. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Novostian economy, worth 64.1 trillion Novots a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is 99,570 Novots, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Picnickers are lucky if a few wasps are the only animals that trouble them, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius', and earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Novostia's national animal is the Novostian Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Novostia is ranked 186,415th in the world and 389th in The Free Nations Region for Most Avoided, scoring 0.72 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
