The Pacific Islands of Arnic is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Sir Orca Daddy with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 1.47 billion Arnicians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shamu Bay. The average income tax rate is 49.5%.

The powerhouse Arnician economy, worth 162 trillion rheys a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 110,769 rheys, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, nothing gets the party jumping like Sir Orca Daddy specifying how high, religious turf wars have caused frustrated police to pray for divine intervention, and advertisements for jobs in the sciences run in fashion magazines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arnic's national animal is the Killer Whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Aquatism.

Arnic is ranked 91,182nd in the world and 3,882nd in the West Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 45.11 on the Rand Index.
