The New Horizons of Greater New Cassandra is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Cassandra Celeste with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.22 billion Cassandrians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Basilreef. The average income tax rate is 95.1%.

The all-consuming Cassandrian economy, worth 235 trillion star fragments a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 105,891 star fragments, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, invading armies are given hard glares for their cheek, it's a long jump to get onto the housing ladder, and the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater New Cassandra's national animal is the barn owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Agnostic.

Greater New Cassandra is ranked 224,994th in the world and 7,854th in The East Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 6.39 Obesity Rate.
