The United Socialist States of Arkerinia is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 381 million Arkerines love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Core Ark Metro. The average income tax rate is 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Arkerinian economy, worth 10.2 trillion Units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 26,645 Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Police officers often conceal their identities to safeguard against public complaints, group hugs break out during floor votes, children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban, and Arkerinian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arkerinia's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Arkerinia is ranked 27,334th in the world and 384th in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 75.79 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
