The Scientific Utopia of Arkeyana is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Utopia with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, digital currency, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.595 billion Arkeyanans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gate Station 001. The average income tax rate is 97.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Arkeyanan economy, worth 944 trillion Soundlings 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 168,726 Soundlings, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's youth would rather watch paint dry than the news, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, statues of famous citizens are erected or demolished on a purely partisan basis, and midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arkeyana's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Arkeyana is ranked 59,358th in the world and 4th in Cymopolia for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
