The Draconic Lands of Arthymia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Grand Dragon Grox VI with an even hand, and remarkable for its national health service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful population of 34.979 billion Arthymians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dormangwo. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Arthymian economy, worth a remarkable 8,890 trillion Floryns a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 254,152 Floryns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, bins outnumber trees in city parks, police struggle to solve crimes due to the lack of fingerprint records, and there is a growing belief that consciousness is a simulated illusion within a computer-generated reality. Crime is totally unknown. Arthymia's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Drakonism.

Arthymia is ranked 170,554th in the world and 14th in Dragon for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.29 Kickbacks Per Hour.
