The Federal Republic of Nova Kobol is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Gaius Baltar with an even hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.295 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, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New New Caprica City. The average income tax rate is 58.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nova Kobolian economy, worth 152 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 117,551 Cubits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Disability advocates are not amused that they are told to be dependent on Nova Kobolians's kindness, polite commuters on the New New Caprica City Metro always let hurried workers off the train first, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, and the price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm. 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 19,146th in the world and 661st in the South Pacific for Most Secular, with 61.7 Atheism Rate.
