The Soul Collecting Chain Warden of Archuria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Thresh with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 12.4 billion Archurians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The minute, liberal government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Education, although Defense and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Lantern. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Archurian economy, worth a remarkable 2,579 trillion Souls a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 208,040 Souls, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

A few immigrants are better than no immigrants according to Thresh, light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment, roadside walls are being built and mother nature is paying for it, and pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Archuria's national animal is the Hook, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Torment.

Archuria is ranked 11,069th in the world and 6th in Caer Sidi for Largest Black Market, with 26.3 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
