The Spears of the South of Arkadia Universalis is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Lyra the Gryphon of House Aetos with an iron fist, and remarkable for its digital currency, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 4.264 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 large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Albaharenum. The average income tax rate is 68.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Arkadian economy, worth 397 trillion Denarii a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 93,113 Denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The Arkadia Universalis Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, late night adverts for breast milk co-ops regularly win pornography industry awards, and older citizens lament over the loss of law and order. 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 56,199th in the world and 2,315th in the West Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 44.43 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
