The Valiant Union of Karkados is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Steven Versace with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, pith helmet sales, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 11.293 billion Arcadons have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Changri-La. The average income tax rate is 91.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arkadon economy, worth a remarkable 1,615 trillion Rohzes a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 143,054 Rohzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, home renovation shows are increasingly popular, the government is flooded with compensation requests, and police protocol is to arrest anyone who looks a bit foreign. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Karkados's national animal is the Zenrir, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Phorce.

Karkados is ranked 195,658th in the world and 112th in Equilism for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -11.05 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
