The Crowned Republic of Arklanda is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 550 million Arks are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Takkenant. The average income tax rate is 67.1%.

The thriving Arkic economy, worth 43.7 trillion Kwarts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Average income is 79,538 Kwarts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

School lunches are made with hypo-allergenic wood pulp, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, barbed wire entanglements and guard towers surround the Takkenant Natural History Museum, and royalist is the most offensive slur in the Arkic language. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arklanda's national animal is the Forest Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arklanda is ranked 164,513th in the world and 807th in 10000 Islands for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -3.67 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
