The Space Agency Nation of Neo Arkansas is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Alex Sullivan with an even hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed population of 3.289 billion Neo Arkansans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gillett. The average income tax rate is 88.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Neo Arkansan economy, worth 362 trillion Artillery shells a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 110,105 Artillery shells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Debate rages over whether ground fish guts can be spread on fields, terrorists are on a first name basis with the officials that stamp their passports, editorials that criticize the government are legally obligated to display the "pants on fire" warning, and the government insists that bizarre Lilliputian language game shows were made domestically. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Neo Arkansas's national animal is the Deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
