The Federation of Arbutus is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Timmy Winks with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 874 million Arbutusians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crystal Lake City. The average income tax rate is 39.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Arbutusian economy, worth 65.5 trillion Miles a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 74,901 Miles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School history books often refer to Timmy Winks as "that imperialist pig dog", criminals lock themselves in their mums' basements to avoid prison, the delay between passed legislation and real world implementation is often a decade or longer, and they say that Arbutusians made a dessert and called it peace. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arbutus's national animal is the Yellow Lab, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arbutus is ranked 124,262nd in the world and 57th in Kantrias for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 294.59 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
