The District of Arkadiac is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Kosciuszko with an even hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, otherworldly petting zoo, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 9.26 billion Arkadiacens are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Welfare and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Warsaw. The average income tax rate is 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arkadiacen economy, worth a remarkable 1,746 trillion Standard Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 188,655 Standard Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Arkadiac isn't what it used to be, you can say what you like about the genocidal murderers that rule Arkadiac but at least the trains run on time, serial commas clarify the relationship between one's lackeys, the taxpayers, and kinsfolk, and when shaking hands with foreign leaders Kosciuszko wears an armoured gauntlet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arkadiac's national animal is the Condor, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Determinism.

Arkadiac is ranked 213,361st in the world and 8th in Aramos for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 13.7 Tourists Per Hour.
