The Empire of Arkalarius is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Ilse Erika von Freyaelv with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, cynical population of 4.952 billion Arkians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Freyaelv. The average income tax rate is 73.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Arkian economy, worth 353 trillion Notes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 71,469 Notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Transgender and agender are on the education agenda, death row inmates cower in fear at the phrase "one-year anniversary", the government considers it a sacred duty to video bikini-clad beach swimmers, and doctors who mutter "Oh my God" often lose their medical license. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arkalarius's national animal is the Osprey, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Arkalarius is ranked 18,392nd in the world and 540th in The East Pacific for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,123.31 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
