The Original Main of United Arkadia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by United Nations Provisional Committee with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 7.964 billion Osiran Arkadians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 79.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient United Arkadian economy, worth a remarkable 1,218 trillion Haloes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 153,038 Haloes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nose plugs are the latest United Arkadian fashion accessory, drivers regularly pull over for nonexistent police cars, the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, and the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Arkadia's national animal is the Pacifican Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Andrastian Chantry.

United Arkadia is ranked 14,398th in the world and 17th in Karma for Most Patriotic, with 35.83 Flags saluted per person per day.
