The Forgotten Kingdom of Arkhane is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by the High Prince Adel Solstice with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, sprawling nuclear power plants, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 17.132 billion Arkhaneans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Education, although Social Policy, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Archsil. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Arkhanean economy, worth a remarkable 1,710 trillion Arks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Furniture Restoration, and Book Publishing. Average income is 99,817 Arks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 293,743 per year while the poor average 26,706, a ratio of 11.0 to 1.

The term cold case has taken on a very literal meaning, calling dibs is an unalienable right, the industries of Arkhane are coughing all the way to the bank, and an epidemic of unpopped kernels causes movie goers to gnash their teeth. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 3,978th in the world and 103rd in the Rejected Realms for Longest Average Lifespans, with 92.72 Years.
