Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Isolated Kingdom of Arkhane is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by the High Prince Adel Solstice with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, ubiquitous missile silos, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful, devout population of 10.825 billion Arkhaneans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Archsil. The average income tax rate is 75.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Arkhanean economy, worth 814 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 75,265 Arks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections, the nation's taxpayers pay for foreign government's extravagances, Violetist maidens who fall for an outsider must leave their violet light districts in shame, and NationStates staff are easily recognizable by their gold-plated mansions. 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 126,150th in the world and 1st in The Arcane Circle for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.11 Crimes Per Hour.
