The Republic of Novas Arcanum is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Senate with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.58 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 1,372 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 159,998 denars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material', class action lawsuits have gone up in smoke thanks to government interference, and the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded. 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 15,130th in the world and 235th in the Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 2,822 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
