Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Starving Artists' Society of Arcturus Novus is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Iacobus Oryza Iosephus with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 10.419 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, although Social Policy, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Urbs Oryzarum. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Arcturan economy, worth a remarkable 1,650 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 158,414 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, coalition governments are essential to passing new laws, and intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works. 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 8,728th in the world and 5th in Kotturheim for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 268.86 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
