The Fallen House of Arcturus Novus is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Emperor Iacobus Oryza Iosephus with a fair hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 6.126 billion Arcturans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Social Equality and the Environment are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Urbs Oryzarum. The average income tax rate is 95%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

There have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', only adults may purchase violent video games, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and Arcturus Novus has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Arcturus Novus's national animal is the felhound, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Chaos Undivided, and its currency is the Arcturan Credit.

Arcturus Novus is ranked 9th in Kotturheim and 6,616th in the world for Best Weather, with 153 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
