The Socialist Commonwealth of Arcadiom is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its frequent executions, unlimited-speed roads, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.144 billion Arcadians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Steadston. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Arcadian economy, worth a remarkable 1,360 trillion Arcads a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 134,099 Arcads, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, the endangered saltwater humpback Bluebird is only seen in captivity programs, black market eau de toilette is made in bathroom labs across the nation, and three-year-olds have tantrums because they don't want to be drainage technicians when they grow up. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arcadiom's national animal is the Bluebird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is State Athiesm.

Arcadiom is ranked 169,037th in the world and 9,081st in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -24.06 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
