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 free-roaming dinosaurs, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 4.13 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 62.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Arnician economy, worth 515 trillion rheys a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 124,793 rheys, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Military officers are given medals for disobeying orders, students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic, disaster relief budgets are growing like wildfire, and students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak. 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 42,344th in the world and 1,516th in the West Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 4,257.56 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
