The Funky Town of Arkmamium is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by The Reverend Sir Dr Stephen Colbert DFA with an even hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, compulsory military service, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 30.288 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, with Public Transport, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, 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 1.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Arkmamian economy, worth a remarkable 8,385 trillion coconuts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 276,864 coconuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

White strait-jackets are the new orange jumpsuits, urbanites battle to the death for penthouse apartments, carpet bombing has decimated Brasilistan's landscape and population, and stun grenade flashes and assault weapon fire form the expected nocturnal soundscape of Arkmamium. 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 7,364th in the world and 183rd in the Rejected Realms for Rudest Citizens, with 118.93 Insults Per Minute.
