The Republic of Arkannadia
“We Will Endure”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Location: the South Pacific
Regional Influence: Minnow
The Republic of Arkannadia is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 380 million Arkannadians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 36.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Arkannadian economy, worth 19.9 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 52,392 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Supervisors in Arkannadia commonly tie bells on their necks to alert employees of their presence, a death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation, immigrants who don't like the taste of Arkannadian Turnip Chips are immediately deported, and prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arkannadia's national animal is the dove, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.
