The United Federation of Arvenia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by King Leonard IV with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 10.148 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 1,322 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 18,308th in the world and 981st in Lazarus for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 97.87 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
