The Holy Empire of Arkins is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Unicorn Wizard with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 16.282 billion Arkolytes enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The very strong Arkolyte economy, worth a remarkable 1,589 trillion ninjas a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 97,633 ninjas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius', cogitators and mass debaters are skiving off work to hang around the National Symposium Park, airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path, and mechanics are often exhausted by their work. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arkins's national animal is the hellhound, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Beeology.

Arkins is ranked 203,443rd in the world and 7,606th in Lazarus for Most Avoided, scoring 0.35 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
