The Bradypus variegatus of Arcturus Novus is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Iacobus Oryza Iosephus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 5.893 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 government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Social Equality and the Environment are on the agenda. 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.

The government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Urbs Oryzarum Times is sold out, meat-eating is frowned upon, and criminals are put to death while cuddling their favourite teddy bear. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is a problem, 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 6th in Tofulinearity and 4,415th in the world for Most Beautiful Environments, with 858.25 Pounds of Wildlife less Pounds of Concrete per square mile.
