The Egalitarian Union of Novaray is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Councillor Zera with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, digital currency, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 9.254 billion Novians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded 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 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Novarayian economy, worth a remarkable 2,353 trillion Credits 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 major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 254,318 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Recognizing the Novarayian flag qualifies you for citizenship, citizens select which government department gets their income tax Credits each year, Novaray has been recently classified as an international menace after 'liberating' several nearby territories, and glamping Novians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi. 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 6,126th in the world and 277th in Osiris for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 13,595.74 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
