The United Socialist States of Nova Arcania is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Marshal Fallstar with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.166 billion Nova Arcanians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized 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 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nova Arcanian economy, worth 515 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, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 162,819 gps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, bars are packed at all hours, every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, and the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass". 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 199,446th in the world and 7,679th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.6 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
