The Republic of Arquan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kalea Valerius with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.295 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 92.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arquanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,328 trillion Spoons a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 108,028 Spoons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, the government's foreign policy statements are less threatening than a World Assembly cease-and-desist letter, if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to hear it... Arquanian satellites can detect it, and every spring railroad foundations erode to reveal human remains. 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 87,006th in the world and 4,653rd in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 17.71 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
