The New Golden Age of Halcyon Nova is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Captain Jack Tre' with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, zero percent divorce rate, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, devout population of 5.474 billion Halcyon Novans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Halcyon Nova City. The average income tax rate is 66.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Halcyon Novan economy, worth 779 trillion Platinum Tikanis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 142,483 Platinum Tikanis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, genetic researchers have been expelled, the banshee wail foretells skies of death, and people talk about things being better when men were men. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Halcyon Nova's national animal is the Malamute, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Halcyon Nova is ranked 187,117th in the world and 84th in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Nudest, with 54.5 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
