The Egalitarian Union of Novaray is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, daily referendums, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.482 billion Novarayians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Union Central. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Novarayian economy, worth 441 trillion Doshes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 177,855 Doshes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, the nation faces constant invasions by foreign boy bands, and posing for pictures is an integral part of military training. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Novaray's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Novaray is ranked 2,518th in the world and 112th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 65.46 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
