The Commonwealth of Arthurista is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Leanne Whittaker with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 15.588 billion Arthuristans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Loweport. The average income tax rate is 82.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arthuristan economy, worth a remarkable 2,839 trillion Commonwealth Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 182,183 Commonwealth Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Billions are being spent on a new island airport, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, the morbidly obese often sell stock options on their own corpses, and fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate. Crime is totally unknown. Arthurista's national animal is the Arthuristan Tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Arthurista is ranked 99,326th in the world and 26th in Ajax for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 208.39 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
