The Province of Arzenoa is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by kanman with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, otherworldly petting zoo, and avant-garde cinema. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 4.052 billion Arzenoans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Troms. The average income tax rate is 65.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arzeni economy, worth 536 trillion primroses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 132,482 primroses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The Arzenoa Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', colonists who were promised new lands find only war-torn devastation, sleeping on the job is recommended, and gossip magazines have pictures of kanman sunbathing on the beach with political rivals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arzenoa's national animal is the rock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is help.

Arzenoa is ranked 33,345th in the world and 1,437th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 75.24 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
