The Crowned Republic of Arklanda is a huge, safe nation, notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 563 million Arks are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Takkenant. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Arkic economy, worth 44.7 trillion Kwarts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 79,382 Kwarts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Teenagers are making eye contact with each other for the first time in years, antique comic book collectors are disappointed to hear that their treasures are worth exactly as little as their mothers said they were, crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, and diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arklanda's national animal is the Forest Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arklanda is ranked 25,265th in the world and 483rd in 10000 Islands for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,275.98 Tourists Per Hour.
