Nova Arcania

Population1.518 billion

LeaderMarshal Fallstar


The United Socialist States of Nova Arcania is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Marshal Fallstar with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 1.518 billion Nova Arcanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large 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 82.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nova Arcanian economy, worth 202 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 major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 133,679 gps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of ankhegs and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry, disaster relief budgets are growing like wildfire, and neighboring nations are tired of Nova Arcania's big fish stories. 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 189,390th in the world and 8,240th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -256.81 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
