The Republic of Novas Arcanum is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Senate with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, national health service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 13.082 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 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Novas Arcanumian economy, worth a remarkable 2,115 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 161,720 denars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Senate has been nicknamed 'Robomop', code enforcement officers circle wealthy Novas Arcanumians like vultures, citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, and you're never too young to learn how to lie with confidence. 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 70,188th in the world and 1,918th in the Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 27.37 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
