Arcturus Novus

Population17.943 billion

LeaderTertius Quirinus Maro

AnimalArcturan valehound

The Federation of Arcturus Novus is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Tertius Quirinus Maro with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, unlimited-speed roads, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 17.943 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 Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Veri. The average income tax rate is 99.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Arcturan economy, worth a remarkable 3,552 trillion aurs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 197,998 aurs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, recognizing the Arcturan flag qualifies you for citizenship, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, and rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements. 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 6,502nd in the world and 70th in The Communist Bloc for Highest Average Incomes, with 197,998.56 Standard Monetary Units.
