The Zacre Impekri of Novus Kanaan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Lord Regent Karam with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 4.276 billion Novus Kanaanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Religion & Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Apex Lux. The average income tax rate is 91%, and even higher for the wealthy. 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.
Families consisting of more than three people are forced to split up, the insurance industry is outlawed, euthanasia is legal, and hairdressers are among those who have disappeared overnight. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Novus Kanaan's national animal is the Herat Leo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Messiano Christovo, and its currency is the Impezka Tevarii.
