The Western Guardian Emeritus of Arkadia Universalis is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Lyra the Gryphon of House Aetos with an iron fist, and notable for its digital currency, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical population of 6.051 billion Arkadians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Albaharenum. The average income tax rate is 70.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Arkadian economy, worth 589 trillion Denarii a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 97,370 Denarii, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, the most penniless demographics have by far the highest number of researchers per capita, women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, and RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arkadia Universalis's national animal is the Gryphon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Arkadian Pluralism.

Arkadia Universalis is ranked 36,276th in the world and 2,004th in Osiris for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,312.99 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
