The Armed Republic of Arkrobia is a large, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 69 million Arkrobians 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 medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 20.2%.

The Arkrobian economy, worth 3.99 trillion Arkbytes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 57,819 Arkbytes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Sections of the police receive paramilitary training, the nation's soldiers sleep four to a bed in order to use space economically, conspiracy theorists allege that the government is spying on them through their carbon monoxide detectors, and snooze factory is now prison lingo for rehabilitation center. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arkrobia's national animal is the Wireater.

Arkrobia is ranked 109,741st in the world and 418th in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring zero on the Clooney Contribution Index.

Largest Furniture Restoration Industry: 45th in the region
