|Government System||Semi-Democratic Autocracy|
|Current Leader||Chancellor cholaso|
Nova Balreska is a formerly-democratic faction born out of the defeat of the Verdantine Sovereignty, when the Verner Expedition, supported by Whitecrest, took control of the island and established a new nation out of the occupants of Fort Verner and the ex-Verdantians. It is ruled by a Chancellor, with the Grand Sea Lord as the second-in-command.
Nova Balreska formerly held democratic elections to determine its Chancellor, who would usually rule for 3-6 months before elections occurred. However, following a vote during the second tenure by FlipppyyJr, the government system was reformed to remove these elections in favor of a "General Assembly" who would regulate the powers of the Chancellor and could vote to initiate an impeachment process should they believe the Chancellor is unfit to rule. The election system and the history of military coups and rebellions in the nation have led to several conflicts and power struggles throughout the faction's history, and aftershocks of this history continue to impact the nation to this day.

Nova Balreska contains both the former Verdantine salt mines and the Sword and Star Tavern.
The spawn-island of Nova Balreska is named Verdantium, after its original owner, the Verdantine Sovereignty.
Nova Balreska takes its name after the origin of the settlers to Fort Verner, who were members of a Balreskan refugee expedition to escape their war-torn and razed homeland.
During the War of Rhonor's Folly in Autumn 2018, Chancellor Rhonor was killed, SaiIingAway resigned, and Davisboy2 was captured, leading to a temporary Admiral Junta consisting of xxXNIEGEXxx, PancakesandSyrup12, and un1que1012. Ultimately, Admiral xxXNIEGEXxx was chosen to be Chancellor after the war's end.
