The Futuristic Haven of Archuria is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Emperor Samael with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and digital currency. The compassionate population of 17.989 billion Archurians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orbital Station Archuria Major. The average income tax rate is 4.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Archurian economy, worth a remarkable 3,885 trillion Kybers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 215,986 Kybers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Exceptionally talented workers are praised more than Revolutionary heroes, gigantic marble churches take up almost half the land area of small villages, foreign leaders are advising that Emperor Samael's letters must have gotten lost in the mail, and every week is blindness awareness week. Crime is totally unknown. Archuria's national animal is the Drake, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Simulation Theory.

Archuria is ranked 3,328th in the world and 4th in Caer Sidi for Smartest Citizens, with 150.79 quips per hour.
