The Kingdom of Arthropol is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Claire Alard with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.33 billion Arthropolians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arthropol City. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Arthropolian economy, worth a remarkable 1,619 trillion euros a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 156,764 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens ask "how many crooks could a nunchuck hook if a nun had nunchucks too?", a bill to outlaw math homework has been submitted, Arthropolians believe manners maketh the leader, and flipping a coin to make a decision leads to a referral to Gambling Addiction Services. Crime is totally unknown. Arthropol's national animal is the golden eagle and gallic rooster, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is La´citÚ.

Arthropol is ranked 4,805th in the world and 1st in Fraternal Union of States for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.24 percentage of bribes refused.
