The Empire of Arnabyssia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Emperor with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, prohibition of alcohol, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-working, cynical population of 1.605 billion Arnabyssians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Onos. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 45.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Arnabyssian economy, worth 170 trillion Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 106,344 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

Streakers swamp all public events in order to bare it all, pocket calculators are seen as status symbols for the ostentatiously wealthy, drill sergeants yell in the ears of bespectacled nerds in cybermilitary "reboot camps", and citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arnabyssia's national animal is the Wilder Beast, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Arnabyssia is ranked 14,055th in the world and 1st in Nations of The Three Swords for Most Developed, scoring 86.98 on the Human Development Index.
