The Funky Town of Arkmamium is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Reverend Sir Dr Stephen Colbert DFA with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, barren, inhospitable landscape, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 28.302 billion Arkmamians 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 minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Public Transport, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carcassonne. The average income tax rate is 1.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Arkmamian economy, worth a remarkable 7,795 trillion coconuts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 275,433 coconuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Newspapers are running a front-page picture of The Reverend Sir Dr Stephen Colbert DFA holding a crowbar and standing over a bloodied stockbroker, nothing gets the party jumping like The Reverend Sir Dr Stephen Colbert DFA specifying how high, the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan, and debate rages over whether ground fish guts can be spread on fields. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Arkmamium's national animal is the Jim Morrison, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the Church of Arkmam.

Arkmamium is ranked 10,230th in the world and 236th in the Rejected Realms for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 377.45 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
