The Armed Republic of Arquadea is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its smutty television, public floggings, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.512 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 Education, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 48.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Arquadean economy, worth 269 trillion Crowns a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 107,432 Crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The number of deaths due to poor fungus identification is mushrooming, getting milk from the local corner store no longer requires donning advanced hiking gear, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, and radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion. 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.
