The Empire of Archipool is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Aston Martin with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, digital currency, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.681 billion Archipoolians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vulcan. The average income tax rate is 65.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Archipoolian economy, worth 83.5 trillion bitcoins a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is 49,692 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Aston Martin has just been declared ruler of Archipool in an international press conference, customer satisfaction with online delivery services is at an all time high, seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, and weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Archipool's national animal is the parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Archipool is ranked 89,779th in the world and 1,833rd in the West Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 6.69 kickbacks per hour.
