The Republic of Novum Futurum is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Hammer with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 3.181 billion Futurumians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute, liberal government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Education, although Healthcare is also considered important, while Spirituality and Industry receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.7%.

The large but underdeveloped Futurumian economy, worth 174 trillion Thalers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 54,716 Thalers, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 184,563 per year while the poor average 12,007, a ratio of 15.4 to 1.

Government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, separatists boast glistening offices on Novum Futurum City's Embassy Row, and meat prices are soaring as the farming industry struggle under government-imposed restrictions. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Novum Futurum's national animal is the Rhino, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Novum Futurum is ranked 16,247th in the world and 922nd in Balder for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 6,852.9 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
