The Confederated City-States of Arclandia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Arc Ignius Rex with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.039 billion Arclandians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adminishire. The average income tax rate is 93.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arclandian economy, worth 363 trillion e-coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 119,652 e-coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Birth rates have hit an all-time low, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, political detractors refer to Arc Ignius Rex as 'that Bigtopian puppet', and minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arclandia's national animal is the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arclandia is ranked 229,021st in the world and 7th in Hermitlandia for Most Armed, with 0.13 Weapons Per Person.
