The Empire of Arkoudan is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service. The quiet, industrious population of 399 million Jamisonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 41.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Jamisonian economy, worth 13.6 trillion jamis a year, is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 34,037 jamis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arkoudan's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Arkoudan is ranked 131,563rd in the world and 5th in Kartokistan for Most Avoided, scoring 1.43 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
