The United Republics of Arbakhia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by James Weeden with an even hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.161 billion Arbakhs enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The medium-sized, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chetwynd. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Arbakhian economy, worth 120 trillion points a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 104,023 points, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 363,088 per year while the poor average 21,678, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.

Many rural villagers have never been more than a day's horse-ride from their birthplace, economists confusingly list "fusarium rot and leaf blight" as major risk factors for monetary deflation, in pet stores nationwide elks are growing in popularity, and no suburban lawn is complete without barbed wire and landmines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arbakhia's national animal is the elk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Arbakhia is ranked 69,741st in the world and 14th in Laotis for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
