The Federal Republic of Arcady-Asclepia is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 360 million Arcady-Asclepians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, corrupt, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Public Transport aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goliath. The average income tax rate is 76.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arcady-Asclepian economy, worth 29.0 trillion Arcady-Asclepian Federal Credits a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is 80,576 Arcady-Asclepian Federal Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

For the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs, the government seizes the property of the recently deceased, comic books avoid plot inconsistencies by removing the plot, and a tax exemption has created a new hunger for octogenarian millionaires dating women 60 years their younger. Crime is totally unknown. Arcady-Asclepia's national animal is the peregrine falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Arcady-Asclepia is ranked 4,142nd in the world and 103rd in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 6,978.94 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
