The People's Free Empire of Arsenial is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Scott with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.094 billion Arsenialians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dorian. The average income tax rate is 64.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arsenialian economy, worth 339 trillion Rhines a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 109,704 Rhines, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, the government has enacted freedom of information, business is adjusting to new gender equality policies in the workplace, and a degree in President Scott Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arsenial's national animal is the Bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Arsenial is ranked 192,028th in the world and 869th in Europe for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -30.85 on the Hayek Index.
