The Too Many to Count Islands of Arnic is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Sir Orca Daddy with an even hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.819 billion Arnicians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shamu Bay. The average income tax rate is 72.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arnician economy, worth 649 trillion rheys a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 111,664 rheys, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A good deed is rewarded with a thank you note attached to a deportation order, crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, Sir Orca Daddy is called 'Patches' at international summits, and paranoid museum guards keep a lookout for any animated displays attempting to escape the premises after dark. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arnic's national animal is the Killer Whale, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Aquatism.

Arnic is ranked 37,593rd in the world and 845th in the West Pacific for Best Weather, with 124 Meters Of Sunlight.
