The Holy Empire of Arkins is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Unicorn Wizard with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.305 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 Environment, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 94.4%.

The strong Arkolyte economy, worth a remarkable 1,324 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 reasonably common. Average income is 92,616 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 2,750th in the world and 62nd in Lazarus for Most Influential, scoring 25,249 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
