The United Republic of Arkaudia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Stefan Hernandez with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.004 billion Arkaudians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Spotina. The average income tax rate is 29.5%.

The strong Arkaudian economy, worth 273 trillion Arkaudian Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 54,702 Arkaudian Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Crowded passenger trains are near-silent save for the soft tap of fingers on touchscreens, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, neon signs promoting safe driving often distract drivers, and giant beards and handlebar moustaches are increasingly popular. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Arkaudia's national animal is the Arabian Red Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholic Christianity.

Arkaudia is ranked 64,154th in the world and 1,519th in the Rejected Realms for Most Extreme, scoring 23.88 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
