The Socialis Statum of Nova Babilonia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Laurentius Hammurabi with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, ban on automobiles, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 1.192 billion latin-chaldeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandria de Chaldeam. The average income tax rate is 90.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient latin-chaldean economy, worth 134 trillion Shekels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 112,426 Shekels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

For some reason the census focuses on daily banana ingestion and hourly quip rate, judicial robes are the country's hottest fashion trend, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, and a vast monorail network carries people all over the country. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nova Babilonia's national animal is the de volucribus sphinge, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secular Astrology.

Nova Babilonia is ranked 221,039th in the world and 1,202nd in Europe for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.31 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
