The Federation of Arkoudan is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 937 million Arkoudanis love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ostermeer. The average income tax rate is 52.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Arkoudani economy, worth 31.1 trillion crowns a year, is led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Retail, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 33,188 crowns, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, a death threat has replaced 'hello' as an official greeting in the nation, voting is voluntary, and heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arkoudan's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Arkoudan is ranked 107,539th in the world and 35th in Kartokistan for Most Extreme, scoring 17.4 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
