The Sovereign Isle of Nova Zemlya is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Primer Ductus Alia Arxemet with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 18.467 billion Zemlyans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arthane. The average income tax rate is 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Nova Zemlyan economy, worth a remarkable 1,758 trillion drosses a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Gambling. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 95,214 drosses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life, foreign nations often blame poverty and terrorism on Nova Zemlyan selfishness, artists attempt to convince the Hardship Fund that their unmade bed is a masterpiece, and delivery truck companies use hospital parking lots to store 16-wheelers. Crime is totally unknown. Nova Zemlya's national animal is the aether eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nova Zemlya is ranked 12,671st in the world and 334th in Lazarus for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 8,265.7 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
