Nova Arcania

Population1.935 billion

LeaderMarshal Fallstar


The United Socialist States of Nova Arcania is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Marshal Fallstar with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The quiet, industrious population of 1.935 billion Nova Arcanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Undermountain. The average income tax rate is 87.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nova Arcanian economy, worth 276 trillion gps a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 142,797 gps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Where there's a will there is usually a password manager, the government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in Undermountain for fear of causing a fuss, an increasing number of animal species are named 'Bob', and lifeguards are stationed on the streets during rainstorms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nova Arcania's national animal is the ankheg, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nova Arcania is ranked 219,737th in the world and 9,647th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -209.64 on the Hayek Index.
