The New Golden Age of Halcyon Nova is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Captain Jack Tre' with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, zero percent divorce rate, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 1.101 billion Halcyon Novans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Halcyon Nova City. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Halcyon Novan economy, worth 145 trillion Gold Tikanis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 131,806 Gold Tikanis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There is an abondance of ackawi and zartschmelzend in every Halcyon Novan grocery store, 13-year-old internet trolls are treated as a threat on par with terrorists, jokes told in elementary school often come back to haunt politicians, and most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists. 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 Golden Halcyon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Jacque Tre'ism.

Halcyon Nova is ranked 15,453rd in the world and 5th in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Most Inclusive, scoring 151.54 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
