Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Economic Zone of Arcologia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by no one with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 11.34 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 3,077 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, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 271,381 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,988,855 per year while the poor average 11,379, a ratio of 174 to 1.

The workforce is almost entirely made up of slave labour, concussed Finchball players cannot remember their lineup position, biker gangs and fashionistas are converting to Violetism en masse, and tabloids coo over No one's expected child. 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 177,606th in the world and 36th in The Cornellian Empire for Lowest Crime Rates, with 3.14 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
