Arcana Islands

Population790 million


The Community of Arcana Islands is a huge, safe nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, anti-smoking policies, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 790 million Arcana Islandsians 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 government is dominated by the Department of Education, although Welfare, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 10.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Arcana Islandsian economy, worth 54.5 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 68,927 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

It's not mass murder when the government does it, thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, students abandon classrooms for online education, and Arcana Islands has designated Arcana Islands City as its capital city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Arcana Islands's national animal is the Emu, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Arcana Islands is ranked 54,161st in the world and 1,910th in the South Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 3.3 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
