The Theocracy of Argvols is a huge, safe nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 970 million Argvolsians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rickland. The average income tax rate is 17.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Argvolsian economy, worth 43.9 trillion hhhhhhhhhhs a year, is led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 45,298 hhhhhhhhhhs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities, country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, and Argvols has designated Rickland as its capital city. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Argvols's national animal is the hhhhhhhhhh, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Argvols is ranked 241,479th in the world and 2nd in The Robotnikist Imperium for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -7.75 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
