The Gamzee Makara of Arcturus Novus is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Iacobus Oryza Iosephus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 5.734 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 is mainly concerned with 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 96%. 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.

Citizens drive tank-like vehicles with mounted machine guns, students cut up leftover Arcturan Credits during Arts and Crafts, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative. 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 129th in Tofulinearity and 103,742nd in the world for Most Authoritarian, with 0.012 Stalins.
