The Federal Republic of Arcturus Novus is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ianus Marius Africanus with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 11.084 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 isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Urbs Oryzarum. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Arcturan economy, worth a remarkable 1,820 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 164,230 aurs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government now pays the "Really Awesome Super Heroes" (RASH) to catch evildoers, Book Publishing CEOs and mild-mannered journalists have been outed as superheroes, Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, and the Arcturan Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances. 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 295th in the world and 1st in The Communist Bloc for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 88.84 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
