The Space Agency Nation of Neo Arkansas is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Alex Sullivan with an even hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ritual sacrifices, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed population of 3.694 billion Neo Arkansans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
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 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Neo Arkansan economy, worth 410 trillion Artillery shells a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 111,259 Artillery shells, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The recently unemployed can often be seen at the local homeless shelter, the once prosperous capital is in utter decline, factories are regularly demolished to make way for low-cost housing areas, and mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of Deer and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry. 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.
