The Elite Land of Arkanik is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ar with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 18.948 billion Arkanikians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bahowal. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Arkanikian economy, worth a remarkable 4,145 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 218,808 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, Bahowal's flashy holiday light displays can be seen from space, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, and citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arkanik's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arkanik is ranked 129,819th in the world and 4,688th in Lazarus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 946 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
