The Parliamentary Republic of Arkham Nation is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Taoiseach Henry Thatcher with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and public floggings. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 14.412 billion Arkians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Limewick. The average income tax rate is 51.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Arkian economy, worth a remarkable 1,440 trillion Arktons a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 99,944 Arktons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down, blackface performers claim they are being deliberately ironic, people are bored of easy crossword puzzles, and only native-born Arkians who have never left the nation are permitted to run for office. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arkham Nation's national animal is the Raven, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Christianity.

Arkham Nation is ranked 16,246th in the world and 2nd in Union of Sovereign Satellite Republics for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
