The Democarcy of Archmatialm is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, parental licensing program, and keen interest in outer space. The devout population of 1.179 billion Archmatialmians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Surf Punk City. The average income tax rate is 33.8%.

The Archmatialmian economy, worth 61.1 trillion Wavveses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 51,808 Wavveses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, the armed forces are locked in an expensive and bloody war abroad to stamp out possible terrorists, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, and courses in how to boil water are popular for formerly microwave-reliant Archmatialmians. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Archmatialm's national animal is the Tabby Cat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Archmatialm is ranked 39,051st in the world and 5th in Hollow Point for Most Inclusive, scoring 115.74 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
