The Federal Republic of Arcturus Novus is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Tertius Quirinus Maro with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 14.447 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, with Social Policy, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Veri. The average income tax rate is 99.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Arcturan economy, worth a remarkable 2,765 trillion aurs a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 191,418 aurs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Interest in globalism never flags, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, and nations that kill an Arcturan can expect a strongly worded letter. 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 154,781st in the world and 793rd in The Communist Bloc for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 170.41 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
