The Western Guardian Emeritus of Arkadia Universalis is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Lyra the Gryphon of House Aetos with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, ritual sacrifices, and frequent executions. The compassionate, cynical population of 7.53 billion Arkadians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Albaharenum. The average income tax rate is 76.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Arkadian economy, worth 668 trillion Denarii a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 88,725 Denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, the most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, and RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arkadia Universalis's national animal is the Gryphon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Arkadian Pluralism.

Arkadia Universalis is ranked 159,954th in the world and 4,739th in Osiris for Most Armed, with 0.27 Weapons Per Person.
