The Egalitarian Union of Novaray is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Lord Councillor Zera with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.62 billion Novians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Union Central. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Novarayian economy, worth a remarkable 1,579 trillion Credits 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 major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 238,644 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The moral worth of national allies is judged by their GDP, the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools, the "do ya feel lucky, punk?" scene is on the core syllabus at the National Police Academy, and excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Novaray's national animal is the Snow Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Novaray is ranked 6,963rd in the world and 246th in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 10.47 Weapons Per Person.
