The Social Commonwealth of Arichia is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 712 million Arichians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Urbe Intelligentia. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Arichian economy, worth 72.1 trillion Pecunia Corvums a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 101,280 Pecunia Corvums, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Airplane passengers have been known to stuff pillows in their jackets to get extra arm room, sex education has become an intricate maze of stick figures and complex metaphors, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, and government bureaucrats shut down teenage yard-raking businesses for being counter-revolutionary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Arichia's national animal is the Northern Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Arichia is ranked 14,558th in the world and 805th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 116.14 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
