The The New Horizons of Greater New Cassandra is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Cassandra Celeste with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 868 million 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, 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 88.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Cassandrian economy, worth 62.9 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 led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is 72,520 star fragments, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Greater New Cassandra Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, and internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens. 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.

Greater New Cassandra is ranked 218,477th in the world and 8,842nd in The East Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -14.7 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
