The Federal Republic of Nova Kobol is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Gaius Baltar with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.25 billion Nova Kobolians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New New Caprica City. The average income tax rate is 57.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nova Kobolian economy, worth 147 trillion Cubits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 117,628 Cubits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program, politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes, the government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers, and the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nova Kobol's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nova Kobol is ranked 216,286th in the world and 6,949th in the South Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.18 Weapons Per Person.
