The Federation of Nouvelle Alexandrie, also known as Nouvelle Alexandrie or New Alexandria, is a confederation of two formerly sovereign nations, Alduria and the Wechua Nation, and 8 other Regions. Its territory covers land and islands in northwestern Eura, near central and southeastern Keltia, the islands of Lyrica, Islas de la Libertad, the Isles of Caputia, and parts of the Skerry Isles. Nouvelle Alexandrie shares a border with many nations. In Eura, it shares borders with Constancia, the Thraci Confederation, and the Haifo-Pallisican Imperial Trade Union. In Keltia, it shares borders with the Haifo-Pallisican Imperial Trade Union and with The Hexarchy. On the island of Lyrica, it shares a border with Hurmu. On the Isles of Caputia, it shares a border with Phinbella and the Haifo-Pallisican Imperial Trade Union.
Nouvelle Alexandrie is a multinational state with a federal and secular democratic parliamentary monarchy, with King Sinchi Roca I as head of state since 1718 AN. The head of government of Nouvelle Alexandrie is known as the President of the Government, currently Paolo Antonio Aguilar of the Federal Humanist Party since 1718 AN. The capital of the Federation is the city of Cárdenas, which makes up the Federal Capital District and is a city that was originally part of Alexandria but was refounded and redesigned as a planned capital city that is still under construction. Other major urban areas include the cities of Punta Santiago, Parap, Lausanne, Narbonne, Beaufort, Nuevo Corcovado, Gotfriedplatz, and San Luis. The federation has a population of 326,962,716 inhabitants, according to the 1723 census.
Nouvelle Alexandria has evolved and grown quickly from a series of annexations and unions of its constituent Regions. The Proclamation of Punta Santiago formed the Federation, initially a union between the Republic of Alduria and the Wechua Nation. Since its formation in 1685 AN, the Federation has grown to include 11 Regions: Alduria, the Wechua Nation, Santander, the Federal Capital District, Valencia, the Isles of Caputia, the Islas de la Libertad, New Luthoria, Boriquén, North Lyrica and South Lyrica. Each Region holds jurisdiction over a defined geographic territory, where it shares sovereignty with the federal government. In addition to the eleven regions, there is one overseas territory, the Overseas Territory of Jaris, an unincorporated territory that was directly governed from Cárdenas through the military, until the federal government provided for its organization via statute.
Nouvelle Alexandrie has one of the largest economies in Micras by nominal gross domestic product (GDP) and by purchasing power parity (PPP). Its economy is considered high-income and ranks high in human development indexes. It is noted for its large exports of weapons, textiles, foodstuffs, automobiles, and consumer goods. Nouvelle Alexandrie also has a large tourist industry, with its island-hopping cruises in Islas de la Libertad and South Lyrica and the allure of the Southern Aldurian Riviera driving consistent growth and profit in tourism. Nouvelle Alexandrie's territory is positioned along some of the most important shipping and transport lanes of the world. It also counts with one of the largest deposits of hydrocarbon resources, located on both the Euran and Keltian continent. Its prominent location along international trade routes is reflected in the diversity of the country and its largest cultural regions: Aldurian (Alexandrian and Caputian), Wechua, Babkhi, Ladino, and Leonés.
Nouvelle Alexandrie is a member of the Micras Treaty Organization (MTO) and the Euran Economic Union. Nouvelle Alexandrie is also a member state of one of the largest alliance systems in Micras, the Raspur Pact.

The region also has large Babkhi and Ladino communities. The Wechua people are among the indigenous people of Keltia.

The public education system in Nouvelle Alexandrie is primarily the responsibility of the individual Regions, with the federal government playing a role in establishing a common educational standard and providing funding for the regions to run their educational systems. Regions provide the bulk of the funding (60%), with federal funding accounting for the rest (40%).
Optional nursery school education is provided to all children between one and five years old. After five years old, school attendance is compulsory, ending somewhere between ages 16 and 18, depending on the region.

The educational system has been set up to be less competitive than other Micran counterparts, which has led to higher rates of student happiness, less incidences of lack of discipline, and better academic performance overall for most students.
Private schools are generally free to determine their own curriculum and staffing policies. Private schools are required to be accredited through independent regional accreditation authorities. In many cases, additional regional regulations applies, depending on the circumstances of the region.
