The Too Many to Count Islands of Arnic is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Sir Orca Daddy with an even hand, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, triple-decker prams, and daily referendums. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 6.411 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shamu Bay. The average income tax rate is 72.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arnician economy, worth 715 trillion rheys a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 111,587 rheys, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, Sir Orca Daddy is called 'Patches' at international summits, paranoid museum guards keep a lookout for any animated displays attempting to escape the premises after dark, and a newly discovered small mammal's name translates into Arnician as 'your finger, you fool'. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Aquatism.

Arnic is ranked 3,445th in the world and 84th in the West Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 239.56 Bank.
