The Kingdom of Arthenas is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Queen Anaria IV with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 811 million Arthenians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Avalon. The average income tax rate is 62.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arthenian economy, worth 102 trillion florins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 126,274 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, sociologists can charge whatever fee they like as the nation tries to find itself, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, and statistics show that terrorists often come from broken families. Crime is totally unknown. Arthenas's national animal is the tiger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Arthenas is ranked 161,167th in the world and 235th in Thalassia for Most Ignorant Citizens, with 0.97 Missed References Per Hour.
