The Worker's Paradise of Soviet Arkansas is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 38.589 billion Soviet Arkansans are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Soviet Arkansasian economy, worth a remarkable 9,651 trillion New Yeldan Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 250,097 New Yeldan Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All industry is owned and run by the government, billions of New Yeldan Pound s are being blown on orbital weapons development, citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, and elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Soviet Arkansas's national animal is the Running Dog, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Soviet Arkansas is ranked 46,185th in the world and 4th in Arkansas for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 258,801 Standard Monetary Units.
