Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Imperium of Arcturus Novus is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Iacobus Oryza Iosephus with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.886 billion Arcturans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Social Policy, Environment, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Urbs Oryzarum. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Arcturan economy, worth a remarkable 1,489 trillion 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 150,644 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, in a baffling press conference Iacobus Oryza Iosephus proudly dismantled a broken door, a niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, and people faint regularly as they get stuck with compulsory vaccinations. Crime is totally unknown. Arcturus Novus's national animal is the Arcturan valehound, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Chaos Undivided.

Arcturus Novus is ranked 9,325th in the world and 9th in Kotturheim for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 3,111.94 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
