The Republic of Novas Arcanum is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Senate with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.113 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 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Novas Arcanumian economy, worth a remarkable 1,296 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 159,861 denars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, footballers are doing aerobics in the sauna to build their hot weather endurance, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, and the diplomatic corps stinks. 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 141,201st in the world and 5,295th in the Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 204.04 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
