The Imperial Conglomerate of Arkbergen is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Supreme Executive Director with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, public floggings, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 15.402 billion Arkbergenians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Labyrinth. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Arkbergenian economy, worth a remarkable 4,494 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 291,842 Credits, with the richest citizens earning 9.8 times as much as the poorest.

Dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, citizens with artificial limbs are forbidden to serve as beauty pageant judges, death row inmates cower in fear at the phrase "one-year anniversary", and Arkbergenian TV is considered cruel and unusual punishment in other countries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arkbergen's national animal is the Black Owl, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Occult Cabal.

Arkbergen is ranked 15,973rd in the world and 1st in Sovereign Corporate League for Largest Populations, with 15.4 billion Capita.
