The Republic of Arquan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kalea Valerius with a fair hand, and notable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.847 billion Arquanians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Casteldo. The average income tax rate is 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arquanian economy, worth a remarkable 1,394 trillion Spoons a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 108,551 Spoons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every spring railroad foundations erode to reveal human remains, vaccinations are mandatory, the banshee wail foretells skies of death, and on-duty Air Arquan flight attendants are usually seen napping in first class. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arquan's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arquan is ranked 5,471st in the world and 314th in The North Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 17.23 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
