Nova Arcania

Population1.508 billion

LeaderMarshal Fallstar


The United Socialist States of Nova Arcania is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Marshal Fallstar with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 1.508 billion Nova Arcanians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Undermountain. The average income tax rate is 82.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Nova Arcanian economy, worth 199 trillion gps 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 Trout Farming, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 132,275 gps, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, a popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street", and most ambassadors from Nova Arcania retire only a few years after being appointed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nova Arcania's national animal is the ankheg, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Nova Arcania is ranked 18,797th in the world and 691st in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 6,095.7 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
