The Allied States of Novoblupolia is a very large, safe nation, notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 160 million Novoblupolians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 19.3%.

The powerhouse Novoblupolian economy, worth 14.8 trillion Polimarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Average income is 92,258 Polimarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

It's best not to ask what goes into Novoblupolia City Fried Chicken's secret blend of herbs and spices, convicted conmen and fraudsters often leave prison to enter a career in politics, the Hanging Gardens account for half of Novoblupolia City's water use, and sailors spend their shore leave helping old ladies cross the street. Crime is totally unknown. Novoblupolia's national animal is the rabbit, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Novoblupolia is ranked 35,464th in the world and 998th in the Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 46,307.73 Standard Monetary Units.
