The Empire of Arcadiam is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Jacques Killoran with an iron fist, and renowned for its vat-grown people, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.151 billion Arcadians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ockham. The average income tax rate is 68.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Arcadian economy, worth 97.0 trillion Marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Automobile Manufacturing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 84,267 Marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Customs turn away those considered to have an unfavourable ethnicity, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, confessions don't count if suffixed with "izzle", and small patches of desolate land across the world are part of Arcadian sovereign territory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arcadiam's national animal is the Scholar Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Arcadiam is ranked 18,445th in the world and 908th in The East Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 80.8 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
