Location: The Cornellian Empire
The Imperium of Arbites is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by the Holy Curia with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.768 billion 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Religion & Spirituality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magus Civitus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 87%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Uranium Mining industry.
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 the all-pervasive police force. Arbites's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Magism, and its currency is the Solidus.
