The Kingdom of Arthropol is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minister Claire Alard with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.617 billion Arthropolians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, 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 94.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Arthropolian economy, worth 574 trillion euros a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 158,765 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, and a widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat". Crime is totally unknown. Arthropol's national animal is the golden eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is La´citÚ.

Arthropol is ranked 151,190th in the world and 13th in Fraternal Union of States for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -10.45 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
