The Allied States of Arvelken is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Lord Protecter Crow with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, free-roaming dinosaurs, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful population of 11.476 billion Arvelkenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, 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 3,153 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 highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 274,769 Vols, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People are raising their middle finger to non-digital currencies, there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, Arvelken recently hosted the least successful trade negotiations since The Phantom Menace, and for some reason the census focuses on daily banana ingestion and hourly quip rate. 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 214,423rd in the world and 6,921st in Balder for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -43.31 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
