The Federation of Arbutus is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Timmy Winks with an even hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 5.058 billion Arbutusians 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 large government prioritizes Healthcare, with Education, Welfare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crystal Lake City. The average income tax rate is 47.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Arbutusian economy, worth 328 trillion Miles a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is 65,003 Miles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The seventh son of a seventh son is fated to be a millionaire, the nation's forests are full of treasure hunters in military-grade survival gear, the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups, and cash-strapped politicians frequently host bake sales to fund their campaigns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arbutus's national animal is the Yellow Lab, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arbutus is ranked 224,737th in the world and 37th in Kantrias for Fattest Citizens, with 8.78 Obesity Rate.
