The Dominion of Arkantis is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Jakalvar with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 7.645 billion Arkantii enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, corrupt, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Twin-Bays. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Arkantii economy, worth a remarkable 1,719 trillion Republic Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 224,977 Republic Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed, unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime, and even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious. 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 1,667th in the world and 60th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 97.94 on the Human Development Index.
