The Dominion of Arkayn Stretenby is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Arkayn Stretenby with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, unlimited-speed roads, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 33.324 billion Arkaynians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Golden Valley. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Arkaynian economy, worth an astonishing 12,743 trillion belzedars a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 382,407 belzedars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Nose plugs are the latest Arkaynian fashion accessory, Arkayn Stretenby goes out to lunch surrounded by large men in dark glasses, NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people, and elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume. Crime is totally unknown. Arkayn Stretenby's national animal is the elk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Methodist.

Arkayn Stretenby is ranked 66,548th in the world and 1st in Macfora Forever for Most Pro-Market, scoring 53.44 on the Rand Index.
