The Republic of Novus Nala is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 807 million Novus Salamdeulians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eosin Laeyeon. The average income tax rate is 19.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Novus Salamdeulian economy, worth 26.8 trillion elegante namus a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Trout Farming, Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 33,182 elegante namus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, the most popular WhoTube videos are ones featuring parodies of iconic songs, tourists are kicked out if they express interest in their national sport, and families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Novus Nala's national animal is the mujigae elit avem, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Novus Nala is ranked 38,759th in the world and 1,350th in Balder for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 3,968.27 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
