The Imperium of Arscanesia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Emperor Arshavin Arscanesia with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, prohibition of alcohol, and smutty television. The compassionate population of 3.687 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, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Imperial City of Ars. The average income tax rate is 76.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Arscanesian economy, worth 456 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 123,772 Ars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The The Imperial City Of Ars Times is sold out, mandatory daycare is provided by the government, school uniforms are compulsory, and police pull people off the street for even mentioning the word plane. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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, and its national religion is Temple of Arscanesia.

Arscanesia is ranked 189,313th in the world and 5,067th in the South Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 136.24 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
