The Furtive Republic of Nova Duroe is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Richard Petra with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, complete lack of prisons, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.542 billion Novans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Sussex. The average income tax rate is 39.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Novan economy, worth 264 trillion Novan Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 104,160 Novan Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius', children have lost interest in toy guns in favor of toy meth lab kits, holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects, and body doubles and armed bodyguards escort witnesses to and from courtrooms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nova Duroe's national animal is the Grey Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Nova Duroe is ranked 80,050th in the world and 16th in Balugata for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 39.14 Effective Tax Rate.
