The Empire of Arx Obex is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 369 million Arx Obexians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arxia. The average income tax rate is 63.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Arx Obexian economy, worth 39.5 trillion Solduses a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 106,980 Solduses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The price of takeaway food quadruples after 6pm, the government snoops on private internet connections, young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts, and tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arx Obex's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arx Obex is ranked 152,087th in the world and 6,684th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -6.93 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
