The Dominion of Nova-Americana is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 225 million Nova-Americanans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.2%.

The very strong Nova-Americanan economy, worth 14.0 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Retail. Average income is 62,299 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 214,679 per year while the poor average 13,239, a ratio of 16.2 to 1.

Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to Nova-Americana as a reminder of their "special relationship", the practice of capital punishment proves divisive, community-designed sword prostheses are becoming dangerously common, and teenagers are making eye contact with each other for the first time in years. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force. Nova-Americana's national animal is the eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Nova-Americana is ranked 176,559th in the world and 6,259th in the Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 90.61 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
