|Leader||Tertius Quirinus Maro|
The Federal Republic of Arcturus Novus is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Tertius Quirinus Maro with a fair hand, and remarkable for its absence of drug laws, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 15.946 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 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 3,103 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 194,625 aurs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, high school bands practice by moonlight, pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty, and murderers with law degrees can be seen swinging the gavel in courts. 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.
