The Ancient Matriarchy of Arkadia Universalis is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lyra the Gryphon of House Aetos with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 12.88 billion Arkadians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Albaharenum. The average income tax rate is 82.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Arkadian economy, worth a remarkable 1,115 trillion Scarabs a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 86,588 Scarabs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Private law firms are unheard of, demand for night vision goggles and boat engine mufflers has spiked, visitors often mistake the toiletplex at music festivals for the main stage, and creative compliance measures ensure that high-ranking officials live in luxury while the country's coffers collect cobwebs. 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 44,924th in the world and 1,723rd in Osiris for Most Income Equality, scoring 63.87 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
