The Egalitarian Union of Novaray is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Lord Councillor Zera with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.946 billion Novians 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Union Central. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Novarayian economy, worth a remarkable 1,168 trillion Credits 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 Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 236,260 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone, the government has officially clarified that "wee on your hands to save time" does not count as proper hygiene, ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, and artists are pillars of society. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Novaray's national animal is the Snow Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Novaray is ranked 20,349th in the world and 518th in The North Pacific for Most Stationary, with 829.85798972388 Days.
