The Republic of Arquan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kalea Valerius with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.401 billion Arquanians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Arquanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,689 trillion Spoons a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Retail. Average income is an impressive 117,292 Spoons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's best not to ask what goes into Casteldo Fried Chicken's secret blend of herbs and spices, courtrooms can be a little sketchy, foreign policy is mostly just to smile and hope for the best, and police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds. 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 238,357th in the world and 9,035th in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 0.14 Weapons Per Person.
