The Grand Duchy of Arkassia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Grand Duke Cristian Hayer with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, restrictive gun laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.216 billion Arkassians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Linemar. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14.3%.

The strong Arkassian economy, worth 62.9 trillion Arkassian Marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 51,702 Arkassian Marks, with the richest citizens earning 8.4 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, genetic researchers have been expelled, Arkassia has designated Linemar as its capital city, and Grand Duke Cristian Hayer has just been declared ruler of Arkassia in an international press conference. Crime is moderate, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. Arkassia's national animal is the Black Eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

Arkassia is ranked 46,052nd in the world and 6th in The Everlasting Empire for Fattest Citizens, with 13.12 Obesity Rate.
