The Egalitarian Union of Novaray is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Lord Councillor Zera with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, unlimited-speed roads, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.343 billion Novarayians 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 large, socially-minded 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 96.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Novarayian economy, worth 700 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, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 209,639 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The NBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, the song 'They Got an Awful Lot of Coffee in Novaray' is a smash hit, third world countries are rich in "I Love Union Central" t-shirts, and tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Novaray's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Novaray is ranked 61,905th in the world and 3,380th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 65.23 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
