The New Golden Age of Halcyon Nova is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Captain Jack Tre' with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, anti-smoking policies, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, devout population of 1.634 billion Halcyon Novans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Halcyon Nova City. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Halcyon Novan economy, worth 226 trillion Gold Tikanis a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 138,904 Gold Tikanis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, teens are voting on which C-List pop star will be next to be evicted from the opera house, government popup ads are springing up like weeds, and the welfare administration's new sweeping authority has forced the poor and needy to shop from pre-approved grocery lists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Halcyon Nova's national animal is the Halcyon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Halcyon Nova is ranked 146,001st in the world and 187th in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 11,112.37 Standard Monetary Units.
