The Egalitarian Union of Novaray is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Lord Councillor Zera with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.107 billion Novians 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 medium-sized, socially-minded, 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 94.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Novarayian economy, worth a remarkable 1,214 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 237,761 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A niche industry catering to S&M enthusiasts has sprung up, where there's a will there is usually a password manager, the population's jaw muscles put sharks to shame, and war vets look after war animals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Novaray's national animal is the Snow Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Novaray is ranked 150,411th in the world and 6,927th in The North Pacific for Most Average, scoring 30.09 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
