The Commonwealth of Novagentum is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, absence of drug laws, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.294 billion Novagentumians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Administration, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanderson. The average income tax rate is 83.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Novagentumian economy, worth 232 trillion dollars 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 led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 101,546 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Solving crossword puzzles requires fluency in at least five languages, city budgets are spent entirely on supporting the town royalty, the nation's youth would rather watch paint dry than the news, and billions of dollars are spent to take high-quality photos of the Orangutan Nebula. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Novagentum's national animal is the Orangutan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Novagentum is ranked 17,091st in the world and 405th in the South Pacific for Nudest, with 209 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
