The Protectorate of Arkad
“Citizenship For Cash”
|Category: Moralistic Democracy|
Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Protectorate of Arkad is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by El Presidente Joaquin Hijo de Juan with an even hand, and remarkable for its parental licensing program, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 1.177 billion Arkadians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arkad Grande. The average income tax rate is 46.5%.
The powerhouse Arkadian economy, worth 83.1 trillion Arkad Rupees a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 70,584 Arkad Rupees, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.
Businessmen walk out of meetings halfway because their shift is over, father-son fishing trips have been banned, the government only invests in infrastructure after a natural disaster, and medical experts advise that those claiming to be medical experts are probably fraudsters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arkad's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Rastafarian.
