The Kingdom of Arnesia is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by King Arnold the Great with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 764 million Arnesians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Armenia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 57.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Arnesian economy, worth 97.7 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 127,824 Pounds, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

It is said that an Arnesian woman's work is never done, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government, and troublemakers boast about how many times they have to visit their therapist. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arnesia's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Arnesia is ranked 48,632nd in the world and 126th in 10000 Islands for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 8.85 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
