The New Golden Age of Halcyon Nova is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Captain Jack Tre' with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, compulsory military service, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate, devout population of 3.49 billion Halcyon Novans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

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 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Halcyon Novan economy, worth 510 trillion Platinum Tikanis a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 146,346 Platinum Tikanis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Businesses that prove successful are immediately broken up, the "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture, street preachers spend more time condemning government bureaucracy than passers-by, and kids these days know how to throw a proper punch. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 113,301st in the world and 57th in Realm of the Whispering Winds for Most Pro-Market, scoring 34.11 on the Rand Index.
