The Outposts of The Arctic Rim is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Duke Rimwalker with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, pith helmet sales, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 19.971 billion Arctic Rimians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Law & Order, with Environment, Spirituality, and Healthcare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rim City. The average income tax rate is 93.8%.

The strong Arctic Rimian economy, worth a remarkable 1,480 trillion rims a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Gambling industry. Average income is 74,149 rims, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Small patches of desolate land across the world are part of Arctic Rimian sovereign territory, casino tax breaks are even bigger than their jackpots, translators have been hired to deal with the varying regional accents during national political debates, and tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Arctic Rim's national animal is the rim walker, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Arctic Rim is ranked 166,819th in the world and 7th in The Kingdom of Burgundy for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -133.42 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
