The Pirate's Republic of Archalit is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Sagaristio Bruscius with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, state-planned economy, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.922 billion Arkali enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Charkara. The average income tax rate is 90.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Archalitian economy, worth 941 trillion NS Dollars 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 105,554 NS Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has awarded itself a month-long holiday to celebrate its achievements, an internet search for the word "bland" produces pictures of Sagaristio Bruscius, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and official government guidance encourages binge behaviors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Archalit's national animal is the BH Pigeon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Piratism.

Archalit is ranked 268,742nd in the world and 1,130th in The Communist Bloc for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -12 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
