The Confederacy of Arkansas Steamed Cockerel is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its unlimited-speed roads, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.565 billion Arkansas Steamed Cockerelians 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 enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Chicken Slaughter House. The average income tax rate is 73.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but inefficient Arkansas Steamed Cockerelian economy, worth 218 trillion Chicken Meats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Beef-Based Agriculture, Automobile Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 39,238 Chicken Meats, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
Dead Chickens are considered a delicacy, politicians are to be found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, newborns are being raised as mindless killing machines, and police conduct weekly raids looking for contraband cheeseburgers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arkansas Steamed Cockerel's national animal is the Dead Chicken, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
Arkansas Steamed Cockerel is ranked 1,284th in the Rejected Realms and 79,041st in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 48 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
