Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Arquan is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Kalea Valerius with a fair hand, and notable for its parental licensing program, otherworldly petting zoo, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.558 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 prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Casteldo. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arquanian economy, worth 909 trillion Spoons a year, is quite 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 106,286 Spoons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Euthanasia is legal, the Arquanian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, the phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, and parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads. 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 140,559th in the world and 7,043rd in The North Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -12.49 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
