The Empire of Arx Obex is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its digital currency, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 709 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arxia. The average income tax rate is 26.8%.

The powerhouse Arx Obexian economy, worth 79.0 trillion Solduses a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 111,436 Solduses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Frat-house partying has become the national pastime, nations that kill an Arx Obexian can expect a strongly worded letter, meteorologists are instantly recognizable from their luxury cars and jewelry, and it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 78,417th in the world and 3,263rd in the South Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 1,407.66 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
