The Grand People's Republic of Arkotania is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Interimen Frek Gneles with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, rampant corporate plagiarism, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.269 billion Arkotani 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, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Garos. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 81.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Arkotanian economy, worth a remarkable 3,340 trillion ArkCreds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 193,435 ArkCreds, with the richest citizens earning 6.0 times as much as the poorest.

Arkotanian scientists are mixing chewing tobacco with bacon flavouring in an attempt to craft the perfect male snack, immigrants complain that natives keep coming over and taking their jobs, moonshine has made a resurgence, and the government is denying reports that criminals injected with experimental drugs have turned into monstrous supervillains. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arkotania's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is State Atheism.

Arkotania is ranked 214,029th in the world and 29th in Warzone Australia for Most Secular, with 6.43 Atheism Rate.
