The Bullseye Hit of Vital Arrow is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Archer Verien with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service and restrictive gun laws. The cynical, devout population of 2.853 billion Arrows are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bullseye Citadel. The average income tax rate is 45.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Vital Arrowian economy, worth 86.6 trillion Seconds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 30,336 Seconds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, foreign policy is to avoid standing up to bullies, whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company, and biology and religious education classes have recently been merged. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vital Arrow's national animal is the Grandfather Clock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Vitality.

Vital Arrow is ranked 106,328th in the world and 3,099th in Balder for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 61.87 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
