The Forgotten Kingdom of Arkhane is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Prince Valerian Solstice with an iron fist, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, unlimited-speed roads, and parental licensing program. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 19.24 billion Arkhaneans 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 medium-sized government prioritizes Education, with Social Policy, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Archsil. The average income tax rate is 39.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arkhanean economy, worth a remarkable 2,171 trillion Arks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 112,850 Arks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prince Valerian Solstice lights cigars with a hundred-Ark bill, it turns out you can teach cats new tricks, Prince Valerian Solstice can't hear a thing when the unwashed masses throw rocks at the new state limousine, and atheistic refugees haven't got a prayer of being granted asylum. Crime is totally unknown. Arkhane's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Interfaith.

Arkhane is ranked 233,033rd in the world and 6,943rd in the Rejected Realms for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -49.9 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
