The Too Many to Count Islands of Arnic is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Sir Orca Daddy with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, triple-decker prams, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 4.61 billion Arnicians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shamu Bay. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arnician economy, worth 541 trillion rheys a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 117,378 rheys, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government makes bereaved siblings into bereaved orphans, taxpayers receive expenditure reports from the Grand High Poobah of the Order of Violet, the airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, and the WhoTube comments section has gone strangely quiet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arnic's national animal is the Killer Whale, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Aquatism.

Arnic is ranked 17,696th in the world and 420th in the West Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 78,446.8 Standard Monetary Units.
