The Empire of Arkkine is a huge, safe nation, ruled by Xavier with an iron fist, and notable for its pith helmet sales, aversion to nipples, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 978 million Arkkineans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ardat Mosul. The average income tax rate is 28.5%.

The all-consuming Arkkinean economy, worth 98.4 trillion Arkkinean Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 100,586 Arkkinean Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Birth rates have hit an all-time low, pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty, the nation's forests are full of treasure hunters in military-grade survival gear, and the fire protection service is wholly government-funded. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arkkine's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Arkkine is ranked 107,387th in the world and 3rd in The Free Front for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,134.67 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
