The Dominion of Arkantis is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Jakalvar with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, cheerful population of 8.037 billion Arkantii enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, corrupt, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Twin-Bays. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Arkantii economy, worth a remarkable 1,815 trillion Republic Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 225,891 Republic Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, extreme political groups are outlawed, the nation's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas, and Arkantis has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world. Crime is totally unknown. Arkantis's national animal is the Golden Jackal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arkantis is ranked 229,419th in the world and 7,677th in The East Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -798.03 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
