The Great Awakening of Argelius II is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prefect Jaris with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 5.298 billion Argelians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nelphia. The average income tax rate is 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Argelian economy, worth 240 trillion Federation Credits a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 45,304 Federation Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is completely gun-free, cold medicines curiously become cheaper when government officials sneeze, Prefect Jaris's power is effectively nullified as no bill becomes law without the upper house's support, and survivors of attempted maternal infanticide are sentenced to live with their mothers forever. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Argelius II's national animal is the Glanthor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Argelius II is ranked 233,890th in the world and 112th in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.76 bananas ingested per day.
