The Crusader Republic of Arkantis is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Jakalvar with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, otherworldly petting zoo, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 6.425 billion Arkantii are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The large, corrupt, liberal, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ot'rollo. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Arkantii economy, worth a remarkable 1,405 trillion Republic Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 218,745 Republic Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Urban parents tell their children that the family car went to a farm upstate, the nation's generous tax credits have brought all the film studios to the yard, any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, and shaken martini sales have soared in nations surrounding Arkantis. Crime is totally unknown. Arkantis's national animal is the Golden Jackal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arkantis is ranked 140,988th in the world and 5,569th in The East Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 26.84 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
