The New Horizons of Greater New Cassandra is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Cassandra Celeste with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.106 billion Cassandrians 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 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 94.8%.

The powerhouse Cassandrian economy, worth 210 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 Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is 99,885 star fragments, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street", Greater New Cassandra has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, statues of famous citizens are erected or demolished on a purely partisan basis, and every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead. 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 10,947th in the world and 332nd in The East Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 92.93 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
