The Crusader Republic of Arkantis is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jakalvar with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 4.2 billion Arkantii Citizens are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The large, corrupt, liberal, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ot'rollo. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Arkantii economy, worth 890 trillion Republic Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 211,979 Republic Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

International terrorists often get their weapons supply in Arkantis, a ban on robots in disguise has transformed the entertainment industry, cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, and criminals and college students are taking an interest in the government's new weed-killing program. Crime is totally unknown. Arkantis's national animal is the Golden Jackal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arkantis is ranked 19,768th in the world and 309th in The East Pacific for Most Stationary, with 709.4481917862 Days.
