The Allied States of Arvelken is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Protecter Crow with an even hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 4.118 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Arvelkenian economy, worth 858 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 amazing 208,541 Vols, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, and UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news. 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 181,386th in the world and 208th in Wintreath for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -33.72 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
