The Kingdom of Arnesia is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, flagrant waste-dumping, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 605 million Arnesians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Armenia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 50.8%.

The all-consuming Arnesian economy, worth 72.3 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 119,443 Pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 337,162 per year while the poor average 33,871, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.

Every day has been a surprise since weather reporters turned to consulting ancient totems for their seven-day forecasts, kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll, search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards, and travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arnesia's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Arnesia is ranked 9,811th in the world and 90th in 10000 Islands for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 57.85 Whatever.
