The Confederated City-States of Arclandia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Arc Ignius Rex with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, state-planned economy, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.847 billion Arclandians 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 enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adminishire. The average income tax rate is 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Arclandian economy, worth 323 trillion e-coins 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. Average income is an impressive 113,702 e-coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's ambassadors often conduct their business in jail cells, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, government statisticians explain census inaccuracies by declaring that "Sith happens", and the nation has an international reputation for compassion. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arclandia's national animal is the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arclandia is ranked 57,672nd in the world and 3rd in Hermitlandia for Highest Economic Output, with 323 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
