The United Territories of Arkzpan is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Syndicate with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, avowedly heterosexual populace, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 11.964 billion Allegiant are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constyatania. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Allegiant economy, worth a remarkable 8,122 trillion Invidions 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, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. 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 a breathtaking 678,915 Invidions, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nudity is frowned upon, even doll houses and dog kennels have to be able to withstand rigorous earthquake testing, executions are marked by quiet dignity and maybe a final round or two of whist, and nature reserves often contain artificial waterfalls and concrete paths. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arkzpan's national animal is the Watchdogs, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Anarcho-Syndicalism.

Arkzpan is ranked 286,802nd in the world and 12,708th in Balder for Most Pro-Market, scoring -88.33 on the Rand Index.
