The Stu-pot of Arcturus Novus is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Emperor Iacobus Oryza Iosephus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 5.954 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 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.

Surveillance cameras are banned, citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, and oil executives can be seen reluctantly cleaning oil-soaked birds. 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 52nd in Kotturheim and 110,772nd in the world for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -10 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
