Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Economic Zone of Arcologia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by no one with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, frequent executions, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 12.66 billion Arcologians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eldfell Energy Arcology. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Arcologian economy, worth a remarkable 3,439 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 271,699 Credits, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,906,643 per year while the poor average 13,216, a ratio of 144 to 1.

Tourists often cite 'hiding money in an off-shore banking account' as their main reason to visit the nation, the automobile industry is sitting up and taking notice of the new 24 hour race events... as are the track's sleepless neighbours, the nightly news reports prosaically on the government blindly throwing money at despotic kidnappers, and it's always rabbit season. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Arcologia's national animal is the Finch, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Arcologia is ranked 161,310th in the world and 35th in The Cornellian Empire for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -23.66 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
