Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The People's Federation of Arcturus Novus is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ianus Marius Africanus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 12.194 billion Arcturans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Social Policy, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Administration receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Veri. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Arcturan economy, worth a remarkable 2,115 trillion aurs a year, is quite 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 173,472 aurs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification, a government program is underway to revitalize Arcturus Novus's beaches, the carbon tax fund gladly supplies warm blankets when the poor can't pay their heating bills, and genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons. 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 Chaotism.

Arcturus Novus is ranked 1,698th in the world and 29th in The Communist Bloc for Healthiest Citizens, with 25.74 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
