Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Free Economic Zone of Arcologia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by no one with an even hand, and notable for its unlimited-speed roads, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 9.123 billion Arcologians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eldfell Energy Arcology. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Arcologian economy, worth a remarkable 2,410 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 264,255 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,964,297 per year while the poor average 10,517, a ratio of 186 to 1.

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 all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Arcologia's national animal is the Finch, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Arcologia is ranked 3rd in The Cornellian Empire and 3,763rd in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 37 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
