The Crusader Republic of Arkantis is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Jakalvar with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, national health service, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 5.683 billion Arkantii Citizens 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 98.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Arkantii economy, worth a remarkable 1,228 trillion Republic Credits a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 216,244 Republic Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service, invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, and what citizens give with one hand they take away with the other. 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 234,225th in the world and 12,946th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -710.02 on the Hayek Index.
