The Constitutional Monarchy of Arscanesia is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and state-planned economy. The compassionate population of 1.453 billion Arscanesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Imperial City of Ars. The average income tax rate is 74.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Arscanesian economy, worth 175 trillion Ars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 120,843 Ars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Decaying farm hamlets have twice the representation of major urban areas, children seem to be getting better at lying these days, government buildings are being cleansed of anything that might have racist connotations, and wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arscanesia's national animal is the Arceus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arscanesia is ranked 257,723rd in the world and 12,199th in the South Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.76 crimes per hour.
