The Constitutional Monarchy of Halcyon Nova is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, national health service, and anti-smoking policies. The cynical, devout population of 597 million Halcyon Novans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

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 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Halcyon Novan economy, worth 63.0 trillion Gold Tikanis a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 105,542 Gold Tikanis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Skateparks can be found in every city, genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, charity workers dole out hardtack from behind designer sunglasses, and every week is blindness awareness week. 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 Honey Badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Halcyon Nova is ranked 92,852nd in the world and 68th in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 1,050.2 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
