Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Isolated Kingdom of Arkhane is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by the High Prince Adel Solstice with a fair hand, and renowned for its national health service, infamous sell-swords, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.714 billion Arkhaneans 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Social Policy, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Archsil. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Arkhanean economy, worth 715 trillion Arks a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Furniture Restoration industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is 73,669 Arks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Space shuttles are lying silent on the runway till the Space Agency can work out how to fit a creche and a meditation room into their next spacecraft, t-shirts displaying a photo of the High Prince Adel Solstice performing the Full-Monty are selling out, government reports are now used to teach toddlers to read, and advertisers scramble to sponsor the broadcast of the High Prince Adel Solstice's most personal functions. 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 142,872nd in the world and 2nd in The Arcane Circle for Most Primitive, scoring -200.13 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
