Overview Factbook Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Allied States of Arvelken is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Protecter Crow with an even hand, and renowned for its parental licensing program, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 3.538 billion Arvelkenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 96.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Arvelkenian economy, worth 670 trillion Vols a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 189,446 Vols, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread, much of Arvelken's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence, the police strictly enforce off-limit zones for tourists, and arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arvelken's national animal is the Boar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arvelken is ranked 82,451st in the world and 116th in Wintreath for Largest Black Market, with 258 billion Standard Monetary Units.
