The Dominion of Arkayn Stretenby is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Arkayn Stretenby with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, public floggings, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 30.828 billion Arkaynians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, 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 11,399 trillion belzedars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 369,777 belzedars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, the entire entry for Arkayn Stretenby in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, and excessive wheelchair ramps on government buildings have been compared to theme park attractions. 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 171,220th in the world and 3rd in Macfora Forever for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.19 Kickbacks Per Hour.
