The United Socialist Kingdom of Arenstad is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 690 million Arenstadians 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 large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skudenesvåg. The average income tax rate is 74.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Arenstadian economy, worth 56.9 trillion Narsas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 82,399 Narsas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers, artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, busy commuters no longer hear the cries of "I want some more!" on the nation's streets, and the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arenstad's national animal is the moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arenstad is ranked 5,019th in the world and 5th in Novus Lucidum for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 80.14 Workforce Participation Rate.
