The Imperial Union of Arkyatan is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Regent Sullerr Ghil with an iron fist, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and spontaneously combusting cars. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 10.189 billion Arkyatani are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Qo'noS. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 42.7%.

The strong Arkyatani economy, worth 565 trillion Darseks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is 55,453 Darseks, with the richest citizens earning 8.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government funds private schools for intellectually gifted children, consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, the education system has gotten a recent boost in spending, and invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arkyatan's national animal is the Kodiak Bear, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Arkyatan is ranked 42,543rd in the world and 1,958th in Balder for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,147.5 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
