The Armed Republic of Arquadea is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.324 billion Arquadeans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 40.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Arquadean economy, worth 150 trillion Crowns a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 113,483 Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
Cheap and tasteless vegetables flood the markets, there's a bustling black market for vegetables, sales of fishnet stockings have reached a record high, and the newest shade developed by Arquadea's dye industry has been dubbed 'Agent Orange'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Arquadea's national animal is the Valerian Crow, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
