The United Federation of Arvenia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Leonard IV with an iron fist, and remarkable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.651 billion Arvenians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Oxford. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Arvenian economy, worth a remarkable 1,388 trillion Arvenian Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 130,330 Arvenian Pounds, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

Telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm, the government regularly hires contractors to construct high rise apartments, government-funded marriage counseling is showing very limited success, and aides are afraid to ask if King Leonard IV wants a cup of tea or coffee. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arvenia's national animal is the Arvenian Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Megandelanism.

Arvenia is ranked 141,570th in the world and 4,360th in Lazarus for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 48.72 Workforce Participation Rate.
