The Academy Sports and Outdoors of Arbonium is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by CEO Ken Hicks with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.238 billion Employees 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 relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Katy. The average income tax rate is 34.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Employed economy, worth a remarkable 1,056 trillion Academy Credit Cards a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 169,375 Academy Credit Cards, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

School lockers are filled with fancy underwear, the military frequently holds bake sales to raise funds, the government pours millions of Academy Credit Cards into rehabilitation programs annually, and savvy nightclub-goers know that structurally unsound venues sell the cheapest drinks. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arbonium's national animal is the Hot Deal, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Arbonium is ranked 160,133rd in the world and 252nd in Capitalist Paradise for Fattest Citizens, with 8.85 Obesity Rate.
