The Departments of Arcanama is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by La Bruja with a fair hand, and remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.443 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, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Environment, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Divinita. The average income tax rate is 84.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Arcanian economy, worth 281 trillion Scales a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 81,707 Scales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The latest political memes depict La Bruja as an overly-choreographed robot, millions of Arcanans are excellent swimmers, the nation is known as the cheapskates of The East Pacific, and old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones. 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 6,577th in the world and 113th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 4,018.32 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
