The Arab Republic of Arklanda is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, avowedly heterosexual populace, and compulsory military service. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 603 million Arklanders are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Takkenant. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Arkic economy, worth 46.1 trillion Kwarts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 76,392 Kwarts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

School children asked "what is two times two?" are likely to form a symposium to discuss how different answers make them feel, the tightness of border controls in Arklanda leave a little to be desired, the well-to-do in 10000 Islands are never on time for important appointments, and astronomers are flocking to Arklanda to take advantage of its clear night skies. 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 Forest Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arklanda is ranked 7,489th in the world and 160th in 10000 Islands for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 47.19 Bank.
