The Commonwealth of The Arbeiterklasse is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Daddy Marx with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic population of 953 million Arbeiters 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, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Utopia. The average income tax rate is 81.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arbeiterklassean economy, worth 104 trillion Marxes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 109,676 Marxes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Computer users are buried daily in thousands of unsolicited emails, referenda are held for every conceivable government action, there's a lot of hot air coming from the Capitol Building, and saying "don't do anything that Daddy Marx wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Arbeiterklasse's national animal is the Mule, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Arbeiterklasse is ranked 8,432nd in the world and 350th in The North Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 10 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
