The Allied States of Arvelken is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Lord Protecter Crow with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 6.618 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Arvelkenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,677 trillion Vols a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 253,430 Vols, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Arvelken's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, the Arvelken Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', it is technically inaccurate to call the dead 'worm food', and roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews. 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 132,746th in the world and 258th in Wintreath for Most Pro-Market, scoring 22.44 on the Rand Index.
