The Futuristic Haven of Archuria is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Emperor Samael with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 15.682 billion Archurians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Education, with Defense, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orbital Station Archuria Major. The average income tax rate is 1.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Archurian economy, worth a remarkable 3,383 trillion Kybers a year, 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 215,730 Kybers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The number of students attending university has reached a record high, internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Archurian weed picker are way up, pulling weeds is seen as a threat to national security, and drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. 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 243,275th in the world and 138th in Caer Sidi for Best Weather, with -289 Meters Of Sunlight.
