The Republic of Arquan is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Kalea Valerius with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 20.106 billion Arquanians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Casteldo. The average income tax rate is 96.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Arquanian economy, worth a remarkable 2,716 trillion Spoons a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 135,129 Spoons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Alcoholism is the newest import from Dàguó, a little pushing and pulling is needed for big ships to pass, reflection is vital for badly behaved politicians, and sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 214,247th in the world and 5,230th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 26 on the Rand Index.
