The Imperial Principality of Arakhkhar is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Vicereine Sevana with an iron fist, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, anti-smoking policies, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 864 million Arakhkharis are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Novalira. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Arakhkhari economy, worth 123 trillion Dinars a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Tourism, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 143,041 Dinars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 437,627 per year while the poor average 36,214, a ratio of 12.1 to 1.

Priests are being drafted by the church load, the Ministry of Truthiness now manages the entire media industry, the military perceives nations hit by natural disasters as "easy pickings", and pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arakhkhar's national animal is the Veksilus, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Arakhkhar is ranked 14,809th in the world and 5th in Badlands Frontier for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 33,215.41 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
