The Crusader Republic of Arkantis is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Jakalvar with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 6.135 billion Arkantii are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The large, corrupt, liberal, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ot'rollo. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Arkantii economy, worth a remarkable 1,332 trillion Republic Credits a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 217,194 Republic Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All Arkantii live like kings, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, East Lebatuckese astronauts' favorite game during downtime on the Multinational Space Station is 'I Spy', and the fire protection service is wholly government-funded. Crime is totally unknown. Arkantis's national animal is the Golden Jackal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arkantis is ranked 201,898th in the world and 7,947th in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -16.25 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
