Nova Arcania

Population1.817 billion

LeaderMarshal Fallstar


The United Socialist States of Nova Arcania is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Marshal Fallstar with an even hand, and notable for its soft-spoken computers, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The quiet, industrious population of 1.817 billion Nova Arcanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Undermountain. The average income tax rate is 85.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nova Arcanian economy, worth 251 trillion gps a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 138,512 gps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Vitriolic divorce proceedings have become prime-time television, lobster tastes best when it is red, stuttering trypanophobes are doomed never to marry, and record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nova Arcania's national animal is the ankheg, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nova Arcania is ranked 185,394th in the world and 8,509th in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -6.32 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
