The Protectorate of Arkad is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working population of 795 million Arkadians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 38.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Arkadian economy, worth 46.3 trillion Arkad Rupees a year, is led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 58,293 Arkad Rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Bike rage is all the rage, senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, visiting dignitaries make excuses to leave functions early and head to the nearest pub, and the government is spending billions of taxpayer Arkad Rupees to support "struggling" industries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arkad's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Arkad is ranked 87,736th in the world and 3,652nd in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,329.05 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
