The Islands of Arvona is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its national health service, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 8.659 billion Arvons are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Spirituality, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pasom. The average income tax rate is 56.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Arvonan economy, worth 104 trillion Orins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 12,086 Orins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School lessons are constantly interrupted by 'teacher needs a break' time, police escort anti-abortion activists to free speech cages if they try to express their views, multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", and toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arvona's national animal is the Bruh, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Danaism.

Arvona is ranked 111,038th in the world and 3rd in Eoni for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 259.79 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
