Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Economic Zone of Arcologia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by no one with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 12.025 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 3,263 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 Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 271,390 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,806,569 per year while the poor average 15,527, a ratio of 116 to 1.

Passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, public shaming is the bedrock of Arcologian society, most academic research has ground to a halt, and the nation's image rights are the strictest in the world. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Arcologia's national animal is the Finch, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Arcologia is ranked 14,046th in the world and 8th in The Cornellian Empire for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 5,264.06 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
