The Empire of South Arckanum is a huge, safe nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 270 million South Arckanumians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.7%.

The thriving South Arckanumian economy, worth 20.2 trillion Arcs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Automobile Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is 74,947 Arcs, with the richest citizens earning 6.8 times as much as the poorest.

The importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, artificial intelligences seeking exciting work are overcome with ennui, in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, and it's a long jump to get onto the housing ladder. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. South Arckanum's national animal is the Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

South Arckanum is ranked 221,024th in the world and 8,235th in Osiris for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -13.78 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
