The Kingdom of Saint Arsenio is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Macio Glennwood with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, state-planned economy, and public floggings. The compassionate, devout population of 2.678 billion Arsenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Saint Glennwood City. The average income tax rate is 82.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Saint Arsenian economy, worth 302 trillion Arsenian Leps 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, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 113,064 Arsenian Leps, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

1% of global paper production is bound for the National Archive, immigrants complain that natives keep coming over and taking their jobs, adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, and doctors spend more time writing sick notes than caring for the sick. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saint Arsenio's national animal is the Grizzly Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Saint Arsenio is ranked 161,784th in the world and 4,873rd in the Rejected Realms for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -12.87 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
