The Commonwealth of Greenwichian Arcadia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Anatole Gessard with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.343 billion Arcadians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greenwich City. The average income tax rate is 88.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arcadian economy, worth 192 trillion arcadian dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 143,567 arcadian dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Maximum security fish farms leave caged salmon pining for the fjords, the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced, children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants, and foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greenwichian Arcadia's national animal is the maine coon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is frowned upon.

Greenwichian Arcadia is ranked 175,090th in the world and 7,270th in the Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.73 Crimes Per Hour.
