The Republic of Arquan is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Kalea Valerius with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.502 billion Arquanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Casteldo. The average income tax rate is 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arquanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,354 trillion Spoons a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 108,372 Spoons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every spring railroad foundations erode to reveal human remains, vaccinations are mandatory, the banshee wail foretells skies of death, and on-duty Air Arquan flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arquan's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arquan is ranked 5,789th in the world and 357th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 91.36 on the Human Development Index.
