Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Arquan is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Kalea Valerius with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.271 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 Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Casteldo. The average income tax rate is 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arquanian economy, worth 973 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 104,999 Spoons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

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 3,946th in the world and 198th in The North Pacific for Best Weather, with 294 Meters Of Sunlight.
