The Ancient Matriarchy of Arkadia Universalis is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Lyra the Gryphon of House Aetos with an iron fist, and notable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, cynical population of 9.897 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, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Albaharenum. The average income tax rate is 79.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Arkadian economy, worth 867 trillion Denarii a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 87,647 Denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many friends and relatives of Lyra the Gryphon of House Aetos have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, neon signs promoting safe driving often distract drivers, courses in how to boil water are popular for formerly microwave-reliant Arkadians, and the leaders of Arkadia Universalis are given the nod by their predecessors. 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 250,551st in the world and 6,230th in Osiris for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.89 crimes per hour.
