The Republic of Arthur II is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Benjamin Norris with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 7.266 billion Arthur IIians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ronald Reagan. The average income tax rate is 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arthur IIian economy, worth a remarkable 2,332 trillion Arthurian dollars a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 320,983 Arthurian dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Taking a walk on the wild side is punishable by death, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, the government spends twice as much reclaiming lost settlements from the sea as it could've on coastal defences, and protecting the land is holey work. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arthur II's national animal is the Dog, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Arthur II is ranked 1,576th in the world and 1st in Federation of Conservative Nations for Highest Average Incomes, with 320,983.46 Standard Monetary Units.
