The Egalitarian Union of Novaray is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Lord Councillor Zera with a fair hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, soft-spoken computers, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.354 billion Novians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, 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 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Novarayian economy, worth a remarkable 1,526 trillion Credits 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 major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 240,238 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Abortions are routinely performed in the nation's hospitals, the needs of the living outweigh the needs of the dead, people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', and hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Novaray's national animal is the Snow Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Novaray is ranked 8,161st in the world and 429th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 11,846.99 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
