The New Horizons of Greater New Cassandra is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Cassandra Celeste with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 2.252 billion Cassandrians 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 enormous government 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 95.0%.

The all-consuming Cassandrian economy, worth 244 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 an impressive 108,740 star fragments, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, President Cassandra Celeste's Twitcher account is typically used to share barn owl memes rather than government policy, the ruling party has a devil of a time keeping order in the ranks, and politicians tend to favor bombastic speeches and kissing babies now that they've been banned from social media. 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 225,366th in the world and 7,790th in The East Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -8.53 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
