The Crusader Republic of Arkantis is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Jakalvar with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 3.672 billion Arkantii Citizens are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The large, corrupt, liberal, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ot'rollo. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Arkantii economy, worth 767 trillion Republic Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 208,892 Republic Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Jakalvar's iHouse is so intelligent that it manages its own social media accounts, museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, the entire entry for Arkantis in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', and jury selection begins with explaining what a jury is. 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 145,877th in the world and 5,356th in The East Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -9.26 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
