The New Horizons of Greater New Cassandra is a massive, genial nation, ruled by President Cassandra Celeste with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.572 billion Cassandrians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Basilreef. The average income tax rate is 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Cassandrian economy, worth 153 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 97,511 star fragments, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Research grant proposals read like political diatribes, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, Cassandrians submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card, and businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections. 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 212,265th in the world and 8,050th in The East Pacific for Most Devout, with 5.43 Prayers Per Hour.
