“Progress Through Compassion!”
|Category: Liberal Democratic Socialists|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
Location: The North Pacific
|Leader||Lord Councillor Zera|
The Egalitarian Union of Novaray is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Councillor Zera with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.197 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, outspoken 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 96.1%.
The frighteningly efficient Novarayian economy, worth 646 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, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 202,260 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Novaray's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
