The Republic of Arquan is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kalea Valerius with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.815 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 92.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arquanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,034 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 105,412 Spoons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dubiously qualified Skandilundian barristers keep referring to laws as 'government guidelines', citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, lending money has become a major liability, and foreign powers often deal with problems that Arquan can't handle. 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 18,799th in the world and 972nd in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 268.45 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
