The Socialist Bastion of New Arkados is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Lenin II with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.604 billion Arkadians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arcadia. The average income tax rate is 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Arkadian economy, worth a remarkable 1,149 trillion arcads a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 151,215 arcads, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Planespotters are emigrating in droves, companies struggle to cover for the hordes of employees on parental leave, producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, and political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. New Arkados's national animal is the zephyr, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Gay Sex.

New Arkados is ranked 229,899th in the world and 396th in The Leftist Assembly for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -11.74 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
