The New Golden Age of Halcyon Nova is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Captain Jack Tre' with an iron fist, and remarkable for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 5.021 billion Halcyon Novans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Halcyon Nova City. The average income tax rate is 63.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Halcyon Novan economy, worth 733 trillion Platinum Tikanis a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 146,085 Platinum Tikanis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, genetic researchers have been expelled, and the banshee wail foretells skies of death. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Halcyon Nova's national animal is the Malamute, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Halcyon Nova is ranked 58,240th in the world and 60th in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Most Stationary, with 207.1276104938 Days.
