The Free Economic Zone of Arcologia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by no one with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 7.532 billion Arcologians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals is effectively ruled by the Department of Commerce, with areas such as Social Equality and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eldfell Energy Arcology. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing industries.
Small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, and the workforce is almost entirely made up of slave labour. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Arcologia's national animal is the Finch, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Credit.
