The Federal Republic of Arkalon is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lee Adama with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, otherworldly petting zoo, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.565 billion Arkalonians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Celeste. The average income tax rate is 68.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arkalonian economy, worth 288 trillion Cubits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 184,368 Cubits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation excels at displacement, polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, the government finds the idea of having an army to be rather distasteful, and graffiti graces every city's streets. Crime is totally unknown. Arkalon's national animal is the Phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Lords of Kobol.

Arkalon is ranked 49,459th in the world and 1,926th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,759.81 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
