The Kingdom of Arvenia is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister George Santoro with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.379 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Oxford. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 73.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Arvenian economy, worth a remarkable 2,106 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 rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 136,964 Arvenian Pounds, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Unemployed political consultants and advertisers spend every election night weeping for the good old days, Michelin-star chefs are being called on to prepare menus for six-year-olds, there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation, and turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius'. 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 12,483rd in the world and 265th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 110.51 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
