The Too Many to Count Islands of Arnic is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Sir Orca Daddy with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, zero percent divorce rate, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 4.167 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, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shamu Bay. The average income tax rate is 62.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Arnician economy, worth 520 trillion rheys a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 124,792 rheys, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Military officers are given medals for disobeying orders, students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic, disaster relief budgets are growing like wildfire, and students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak. 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 107,971st in the world and 2,950th in the West Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 45.44 on the Rand Index.
