The Very Good Boi of Arkadia Universalis is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lyra the Gryphon of House Aetos with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical population of 8.651 billion Arkadians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Albaharenum. The average income tax rate is 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Arkadian economy, worth 738 trillion Denarii a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 85,386 Denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military has forsaken terrestrial warfare, nobles' fancy titles no longer help them cut in line at the supermarket, residents of newly dried out bays live in fear of leaky dikes, and protecting the land is holey work. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arkadia Universalis's national animal is the Gryphon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Arkadian Pluralism.

Arkadia Universalis is ranked 170,523rd in the world and 6,781st in Osiris for Most Armed, with 0.26 weapons per person.
