The Crusader Republic of Arkantis is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Jakalvar with an iron fist, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 5.921 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 Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ot'rollo. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Arkantii economy, worth a remarkable 1,286 trillion Republic Credits a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 217,273 Republic Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Judges who serve for life or good behavior can expect to stay for a week, all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, rumor has it that Jakalvar has won three lotteries in a row, and the practice of capital punishment proves divisive. 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 163,065th in the world and 7,080th in The East Pacific for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -3.58 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
