OverviewFactbookDispatchesPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Kingdom of Arklanda is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Yaseen with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, complete lack of prisons, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate, devout population of 1.465 billion Arklanders are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mintakaville. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arkic economy, worth 131 trillion Kwarts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving and Cheese Exports. Average income is 89,844 Kwarts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, school football matches are usually five-a-side, and tabloids publicly shun nurses for not calling home on the weekends. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arklanda's national animal is the Shrike Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Islam.

Arklanda is ranked 227,576th in the world and 386th in Forest for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring -8.37 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
