The Democratic Republic of Novus Imperialis is a huge, genial nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 278 million Novus Imperialisians 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 Defense, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 14.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Novus Imperialisian economy, worth 14.1 trillion Pound Sterlings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 50,776 Pound Sterlings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, fitness to teach sport is proven by urinating the furthest up a wall, mechanics are often exhausted by their work, and the nation is The North Pacific's leading manufacturer of intricately-patterned sweaters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Novus Imperialis's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Novus Imperialis is ranked 24,487th in the world and 1,239th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.13 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
