The Imperial Republic of Arconia Defender is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lord High Admiral with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 10.103 billion Arconians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arconia City. The average income tax rate is 42.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Arconia Defenderian economy, worth 502 trillion Dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 49,752 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, procrastination is a national sport, no cul-de-sac or trailer park is complete without a gambling parlor, and troop transports blacken the sky as the military commences Operation Desert Ocean. Crime is relatively low. Arconia Defender's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Jediism.

Arconia Defender is ranked 109,820th in the world and 2nd in Federation of Whitefall for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 1,186.6 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
