Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Empire of Archeros is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Lich King with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, avant-garde cinema, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 1.566 billion Archerosians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Icecrow Citadel. The average income tax rate is 7.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Archerosian economy, worth 235 trillion Imperials a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 150,152 Imperials, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Anyone who so much as looks at Royalty without the proper amount of deference is punished, teenage TV characters are played by thirty-year-olds by the end of the second season, all writing must pass a censorship board before being allowed on the shelves, and it is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Archeros's national animal is the Death Charger, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Cult of the Damned.

Archeros is ranked 8,460th in the world and 388th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 9,865.65 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
