The Armed Republic of Arquadea is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its smutty television, infamous sell-swords, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.542 billion Arquadeans 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 Defense, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 44.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Arquadean economy, worth 169 trillion Crowns a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 109,797 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
Organised sports are frowned upon as frivolous, drug distribution is tightly controlled by the government, jaywalking is punishable by public flogging, and concerned environmentalists wipe away their tears with tissues sourced from Tasmanian old-growth redwoods. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arquadea's national animal is the Valerian Crow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
