The Elite Land of Arkanik is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Ar with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and national health service. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 17.515 billion Arkanikians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bahowal. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Arkanikian economy, worth a remarkable 3,801 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 217,041 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Small patches of desolate land across the world are part of Arkanikian sovereign territory, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, there is something rotten in the state of Arkanik, and most ambassadors from Arkanik retire only a few years after being appointed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arkanik's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arkanik is ranked 199,185th in the world and 7,173rd in Lazarus for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -13.27 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
