The Allied States of Arvelken is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Protecter Crow with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 6.065 billion Arvelkenians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Arvelkenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,479 trillion Vols a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 243,981 Vols, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bins outnumber trees in city parks, the government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, some of the country's most famous photographers are animals, and grocery stores can be audibly identified by the giggling emerging from them. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded 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 18,131st in the world and 29th in Wintreath for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 308,745.39 Standard Monetary Units.
