The Republic of Arthur II is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Benjamin Norris with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, avant-garde cinema, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.401 billion Arthur IIians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ronald Reagan. The average income tax rate is 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arthur IIian economy, worth a remarkable 2,393 trillion Arthurian dollars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 323,460 Arthurian dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

It's never "just a game" with Arthur IIian sports fans, it is considered unpatriotic to learn a foreign language, international trade is a sticky issue, and Benjamin Norris's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arthur II's national animal is the Dog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Arthur II is ranked 108,146th in the world and 31st in Federation of Conservative Nations for Most Pro-Market, scoring 45.67 on the Rand Index.
