The Commonwealth of Arcadim is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.953 billion Arcadimen 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 Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Avalon. The average income tax rate is 89.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arcadimian economy, worth 282 trillion Dollors a year, is highly specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 144,467 Dollors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

New government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, snap elections are called over every minor impasse, therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, and park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets. 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 56,074th in the world and 2,990th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 65.74 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
