|Leader||The Emperor August II|
The Empire of Arcanian Empire is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Emperor August II with an iron fist, and renowned for its digital currency, infamous sell-swords, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.114 billion Arcanians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mandas. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 55.2%.
The frighteningly efficient Arcanian economy, worth 192 trillion Pecunas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 173,111 Pecunas, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 488,655 per year while the poor average 49,091, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.
Religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, open-casket funerals are avoided at all cost, diplomats in Arcanian Empire are furious at constant police surveillance, and eminent domain has been abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arcanian Empire's national animal is the Harpya, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Aquilianism.
