The New Horizons of Greater New Cassandra is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Cassandra Celeste with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.828 billion Cassandrians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Cassandrian economy, worth 179 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 Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is 98,352 star fragments, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gay men commonly complain about their time of the month, the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', 'A is for Annulment' is a popular children's song, and convicts released after being found "wrongfully imprisoned" are surprisingly chill about the whole thing. 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 237,581st in the world and 8,241st in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -17.69 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
