The New Horizons of Greater New Cassandra is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Cassandra Celeste with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.823 billion Cassandrians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Basilreef. The average income tax rate is 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Cassandrian economy, worth 180 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is 98,897 star fragments, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room, large-girthed charity workers assign themselves healthy wages for their work with starving children, burning twigs to keep warm while lost in the wild is now a felony, and hackers post hourly updates on international summits. 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 71,570th in the world and 2,593rd in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 71.43 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
