The Isolated Kingdom of Arkhane is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Prince Adel Solstice with an even hand, and notable for its national health service. The compassionate population of 1.439 billion, 1.437 billion of whom are zombies, Arkhaneans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Equality, Education, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Archsil. The average income tax rate is 55%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Houses and businesses are bulldozed to make way for ever-expanding cemeteries, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, anti-government web sites are springing up, and children as young as six shock their parents by coming out of the closet. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arkhane's national animal is the Dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Interfaith, and its currency is the Ark.

Arkhane is ranked 2nd in The Arcane Circle and 113,893rd in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -23 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Arkhane is currently considering its options.
