The Allied States of Arvelken is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Protecter Crow with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 5.162 billion Arvelkenians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 99.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Arvelkenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,170 trillion Vols a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 226,704 Vols, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, the price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, the nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks, and tourists avoid using the nation's bugged phones and monitored internet. 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 54,954th in the world and 115th in Wintreath for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 66.05 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
