The Commonwealth of Arcadim is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its frequent executions, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.299 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 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arcadimian economy, worth 332 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 144,453 Dollors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, many parents are becoming frustrated with their children's choices in spouses, foreign nations kill migratory animals at random in the hope that Arcadim will pay them to stop, and enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity. 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 4,847th in the world and 270th in The North Pacific for Most Pacifist, with 161.59 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
