The Funky Town of Arkmamium is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Reverend Sir Dr Stephen Colbert DFA with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, zero percent divorce rate, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 31.287 billion Arkmamians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Public Transport, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Carcassonne. The average income tax rate is 1.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Arkmamian economy, worth a remarkable 8,662 trillion coconuts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 276,864 coconuts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

White strait-jackets are the new orange jumpsuits, urbanites battle to the death for penthouse apartments, carpet bombing has decimated Brasilistan's landscape and population, and stun grenade flashes and assault weapon fire form the expected nocturnal soundscape of Arkmamium. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Arkmamium's national animal is the Jim Morrison, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the Church of Arkmam.

Arkmamium is ranked 27,737th in the world and 903rd in the Rejected Realms for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 1,851.01 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
