The Crusader Republic of Arkantis is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Jakalvar with an iron fist, and remarkable for its national health service, otherworldly petting zoo, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 5.896 billion Arkantii Citizens are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The large, corrupt, liberal, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ot'rollo. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Arkantii economy, worth a remarkable 1,281 trillion Republic Credits a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 217,354 Republic Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Arkantii Space Agency, trespassers entering Jakalvar's office are immediately vaporized, judges who serve for life or good behavior can expect to stay for a week, and all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers. Crime is totally unknown. Arkantis's national animal is the Golden Jackal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arkantis is ranked 2,733rd in the world and 81st in The East Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 93.37 Years.
