The New Horizons of Greater New Cassandra is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Cassandra Celeste with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.046 billion Cassandrians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded 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 94.5%.

The all-consuming Cassandrian economy, worth 203 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 Book Publishing. Average income is 99,536 star fragments, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage', military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, group hugs break out during floor votes, and the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene. 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 6,054th in the world and 189th in The East Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 2,073.73 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
