The Commonwealth of Greenwichian Arcadia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Anatole Gessard with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, national health service, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.229 billion Arcadians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greenwich City. The average income tax rate is 96.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Arcadian economy, worth 894 trillion arcadian dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 211,417 arcadian dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens praise the weeds that overwhelm their narrow vegetable realm, groups of government workers are declared protected tribes if they venture too deep into the Capitol, hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment, and election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes. Crime is totally unknown. 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 137,059th in the world and 3,820th in the Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 142.41 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
