The Crusader Republic of Arkantis is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Jakalvar with an iron fist, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, infamous sell-swords, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 6.438 billion Arkantii 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, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ot'rollo. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Arkantii economy, worth a remarkable 1,411 trillion Republic Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 219,225 Republic Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates, military spending is on the increase, old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, and there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation. 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 3,926th in the world and 88th in The East Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 3,004.64 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
