The Allied States of Arvelken is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Protecter Crow with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 4.642 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 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Arvelkenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,018 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 significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 219,479 Vols, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Arvelken, it is common to still see adults with training wheels on their bikes, and the nation has nearly as many history museums as Arvelkenians. 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 65,876th in the world and 95th in Wintreath for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 2,400.9 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
