The Imperium of Arbites is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Holy Curia with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, avowedly heterosexual populace, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.869 billion Arbiters are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Magus Civitus. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Arbitesian economy, worth a remarkable 3,690 trillion Soliduses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 266,127 Soliduses, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,124,459 per year while the poor average 40,750, a ratio of 27.6 to 1.

Abortions are carried out secretly in shady backstreet clinics, Brasilistanis face layers of paperwork in a different language just to visit a doctor, penal labor is a de facto death sentence, and meals are now followed by thirty minutes of mandatory exercise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Arbites's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Magism.

Arbites is ranked 12,581st in the world and 3rd in The Cornellian Empire for Most Authoritarian, with 2.03 Stalins.
