Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Allied States of Arvelken is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Lord Protecter Crow with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, cheerful population of 3.194 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, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Arvelkenian economy, worth 647 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 202,612 Vols, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy, the delay between passed legislation and real world implementation is often a decade or longer, the nation's peacekeeping efforts usually comes with a healthy dose of pillaging, and referenda are held for every conceivable government action. 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 17,887th in the world and 36th in Wintreath for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 10,554.88 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
