The Western Guardian Emeritus of Arkadia Universalis is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lyra the Gryphon of House Aetos with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ritual sacrifices, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, cynical population of 7.267 billion Arkadians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Albaharenum. The average income tax rate is 74.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Arkadian economy, worth 678 trillion Denarii a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 93,408 Denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, the most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, and RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arkadia Universalis's national animal is the Gryphon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Arkadian Pluralism.

Arkadia Universalis is ranked 25,459th in the world and 1,436th in Osiris for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,091.6 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
