The Departments of Arcanama is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by La Bruja with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, national health service, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.848 billion Arcanans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Divinita. The average income tax rate is 87.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Arcanian economy, worth 438 trillion Scales a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 90,477 Scales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Carefully-staged grief is displayed by La Bruja after national disasters, evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction, the government is avowedly secular, and artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arcanama's national animal is the Ghost, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Elemenia.

Arcanama is ranked 151,508th in the world and 6,256th in The East Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring zero on the Hickory Productivity Index.
