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 remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and digital currency. The compassionate, cheerful population of 2.807 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, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Arvelkenian economy, worth 523 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 186,388 Vols, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless, and national parks have long lines of different gender-specific 'Porta-Pottys'. 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 41,687th in the world and 54th in Wintreath for Most Authoritarian, with 0.55 Stalins.
