The Republic of Novas Arcanum is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Senate with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.172 billion Novas Arcanumians 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 large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lyra. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Novas Arcanumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,629 trillion denars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 160,235 denars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Lyra Preparatory School for the Exceedingly Wealthy's basketball team is having a few off-years, airport announcements inform passengers that flights have been delayed because pilots are having afternoon naps, The Senate's new door-knocking campaign has the sweet taste of success, and diplomats are always trying to convince other nations to adopt l33t speak. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Novas Arcanum's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Novas Arcanum is ranked 216,975th in the world and 5,626th in the Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.16 Weapons Per Person.
