|Leader||Imperator James Gravidia|
The 2nd Arcadian Empire of Long Gravida is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Imperator James Gravidia with a fair hand, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 6.777 billion Arcadians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gravis. The average income tax rate is 64.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Arcadian economy, worth 321 trillion Arcadian Pounds a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 47,458 Arcadian Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government snoops on private internet connections, guns are banned, Eastern Orthodoxy has been named as Long Gravida's national religion, and Imperator James Gravidia has just been declared ruler of Long Gravida in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Long Gravida's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Eastern Orthodoxy.
