The Dominion of Arcterus is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Prime Executor with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, rampant corporate plagiarism, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 18.688 billion Arcterrans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, outspoken morass — prioritizes Education, with Environment, Social Policy, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Law & Order aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Installation Heliopolis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Arcterian economy, worth a remarkable 4,405 trillion Ration Cards a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 235,751 Ration Cards, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, Celts are frequently shot for looking at people 'in a funny way', popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, and space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space. Crime is totally unknown. Arcterus's national animal is the Celt, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arcterus is ranked 155,795th in the world and 39th in Yggdrasil for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.36 Crimes Per Hour.
