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 remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 7.904 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 Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Albaharenum. The average income tax rate is 76.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Arkadian economy, worth 710 trillion Denarii a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 89,870 Denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, the most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, and RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept. 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 167,000th in the world and 5,426th in Osiris for Most Conservative, scoring 38.58 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
