The Imperial Vicariate of Arleat is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its daily referendums, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 748 million Arleats love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nancy. The average income tax rate is 82.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arlesian economy, worth 88.2 trillion Guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 117,869 Guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Colonists who were promised new lands find only war-torn devastation, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, it's often raining men (hallelujah) in Nancy, and camo-patterned plush comfort blankets are standard issue for commandos. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arleat's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arleat is ranked 64,555th in the world and 907th in The East Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 74.38 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
