The Republic of Arquan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kalea Valerius with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.022 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 92.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arquanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,177 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 106,859 Spoons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", foreign policy is to avoid standing up to bullies, it's been a banner year for local vexillology, and trust-fund babies line up for places in community college. 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 158,582nd in the world and 9,343rd in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -14.42 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
