The Egalitarian Union of Novaray is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Lord Councillor Zera with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.427 billion Novians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, 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 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Novarayian economy, worth a remarkable 1,278 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, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 235,600 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

No one is quite sure what many government officials look like, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, and referenda are held for every conceivable government action. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Novaray's national animal is the Snow Owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Novaray is ranked 224,948th in the world and 10,110th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -26.87 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
