The Confederate States of Arkinesia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Neil Knight with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 14.337 billion Arkinesians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.
The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kotaharapan. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.3%.
The all-consuming Arkinesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,786 trillion Bahpiahars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 124,639 Bahpiahars, with the richest citizens earning 7.1 times as much as the poorest.
Waste is frequently shipped to other countries, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and the tenet of free speech is held dear. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arkinesia's national animal is the Wyvern, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
