The Federal Republic of Arkinesia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Neil Knight with a fair hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, unlimited-speed roads, and national health service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 19.802 billion Arkinesians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kotaharapan. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.8%.

The all-consuming Arkinesian economy, worth a remarkable 2,126 trillion Bahpiahars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 107,401 Bahpiahars, with the richest citizens earning 6.5 times as much as the poorest.

Earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, the Betamax versus VHS debate continues to rage strongly in Arkinesia, psychiatrists that date patients are congratulated on their romantic conquests, and elderly prisoners with severe dementia are reminded hourly that they are evil people by helpful nurse-wardens. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arkinesia's national animal is the Wyvern, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Arkinesia is ranked 19,352nd in the world and 2nd in Sals Realm II for Lowest Crime Rates, with 80.94 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
