The Federal Republic of A R V E R N A is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Princeps Alexius Arvernius with an even hand, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, flagrant waste-dumping, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 3.337 billion Arvernians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aeternapolis. The average income tax rate is 67.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arverner economy, worth 439 trillion Garnets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 131,657 Garnets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The A R V E R N A Mental Asylum Party have recently won seats in parliament, interviewees for teaching jobs are waterboarded to "reveal undesirable histories", strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, and infantry are nicknamed "mushrooms" because they get fed crap and are left in the dark. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. A R V E R N A's national animal is the Tyrannosaurus rex, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

A R V E R N A is ranked 187,889th in the world and 603rd in 10000 Islands for Most Armed, with 0.23 Weapons Per Person.
