The Commonwealth of Arcadim is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, otherworldly petting zoo, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 2.831 billion Arcadimen are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

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 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arcadimian economy, worth 413 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 146,021 Dollors, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap, there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, and surfing lessons include how to ward off sharks. 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 156,678th in the world and 5,574th in Lazarus for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 21.93 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
