The Republic of Arquan is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Kalea Valerius with a fair hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, otherworldly petting zoo, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.653 billion Arquanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Casteldo. The average income tax rate is 92.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arquanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,145 trillion Spoons a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 107,536 Spoons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There are no more heroes any more, there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", and foreign policy is to avoid standing up to bullies. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arquan's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arquan is ranked 47,327th in the world and 2,526th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 68.05 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
