The Regno d'Italia of Arcanda is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Alcide De Gasperi with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 17.081 billion Italians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rome. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Italian economy, worth a remarkable 1,953 trillion lire a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 114,386 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

4-year-olds studying for their mathematics exams are anxious that they will be unemployable in adulthood if they fail, supervisors in Arcanda commonly tie bells on their necks to alert employees of their presence, passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, and prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arcanda's national animal is the ---, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arcanda is ranked 301,971st in the world and 400th in Commonwealth of Liberty for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -16.96 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
