The Space Trade Station of Polar Arc is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Pirpire with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.7 billion Penguins are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arc Station 1. The average income tax rate is 63.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Polar Arcian economy, worth 400 trillion Galactic Credits a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 148,194 Galactic Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Almost all of the nation's water is piped into the country from abroad for exorbitant prices, teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, wrongful arrests abound as 'criminals' blame the guy next to them, and retail stores offer sales every hour on the hour. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Polar Arc's national animal is the Robo Seals, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Penguinism.

Polar Arc is ranked 22,753rd in the world and 1,102nd in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 64,061.81 Standard Monetary Units.
