The Thug Seme of Arcturus Novus is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Iacobus Oryza Iosephus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, unlimited-speed roads, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 6.828 billion Arcturans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Social Policy and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Urbs Oryzarum. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Arcturan economy, worth 808 trillion Arcturan Credits a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,380 Arcturan Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The newspaper industry is subsidised by the government in order to keep it afloat, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, and legislation sometimes has to battle through weeks of filibustering to pass. Crime is totally unknown. Arcturus Novus's national animal is the felhound, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Chaos Undivided.

Arcturus Novus is ranked 77th in Kotturheim and 114,627th in the world for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -10 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
