Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Imperium of Arbites is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by the Holy Curia with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.203 billion Arbitesians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magus Civitus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 67.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Arbitesian economy, worth a remarkable 2,417 trillion Soliduses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 262,667 Soliduses, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,220,309 per year while the poor average 33,976, a ratio of 35.9 to 1.

Torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, there are no minimum wage laws, and women who display their ankles are shunned by society. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Arbites's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Magism.

Arbites is ranked 30th in The Cornellian Empire and 145,315th in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -188 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
