|Leader||Interimen Frek Gneles|
The Grand People's Republic of Arkotania is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Interimen Frek Gneles with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, triple-decker prams, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 15.554 billion Arkotani are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Garos. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 80.7%.
The frighteningly efficient Arkotanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,911 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 Retail. 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 187,157 ArkCreds, with the richest citizens earning 7.7 times as much as the poorest.
It is impossible to get any work done as auditors swarm every inch of government factories and mines, the army's use of chemical weapons leaves a bad taste in the mouth, builders across Arkotania are blocked up with orders for new public loos, and Interimen Frek Gneles tells rebellious ministers to "drop and give me twenty". 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.
