The Federal Republic of Arcturus Novus is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Tertius Quirinus Maro with a fair hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, infamous sell-swords, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 15.25 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 is ignored. 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 2,955 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 193,832 aurs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nude art is becoming wildly popular, an underground group of geologists hides new discoveries to protect them from being destroyed in the name of safety, school lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, and the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies. 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 1,780th in the world and 44th in The Communist Bloc for Most Pacifist, with 198.53 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
