The Allied States of Arvelken is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Lord Protecter Crow with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, complete lack of prisons, and digital currency. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 9.267 billion Arvelkenians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

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 2,541 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 274,281 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, national stress about the waning heir-line is causing a rise in alopecia, human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, and elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation. 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 206,622nd in the world and 407th in Wintreath for Least Corrupt Governments, with 13.21 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
