The Crusader Republic of Arkantis is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jakalvar with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 3.527 billion Arkantii Citizens are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ot'rollo. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Arkantii economy, worth 728 trillion Republic Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 206,630 Republic Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, and artists are pillars of society. 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 167,915th in the world and 6,317th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -554.67 on the Hayek Index.
