The Commonwealth of Arcadim is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, otherworldly petting zoo, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 892 million Arcadimians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Avalon. The average income tax rate is 84.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arcadimian economy, worth 113 trillion Dollors a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 127,575 Dollors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The ABI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, and psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Leader to meetings with foreign heads of state. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arcadim's national animal is the Asian Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arcadim is ranked 10,050th in the world and 488th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 119.02 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
