The New Golden Age of Halcyon Nova is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Captain Jack Tre' with an even hand, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, devout population of 3.456 billion Halcyon Novans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

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 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Halcyon Novan economy, worth 515 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 reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 149,070 Platinum Tikanis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's faithful often say there is a higher power watching over them, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, and a good deed is rewarded with a thank you note attached to a deportation order. 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 4,918th in the world and 1st in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 20 Valid Endorsements.
