The Imperial Territories of Arkzpan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Syndicate with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, vat-grown people, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.952 billion Allegiant are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Constyatania. The average income tax rate is 98.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Allegiant economy, worth a remarkable 3,227 trillion Invidions a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 542,192 Invidions, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, the Farmer's Almanac is the most popular college textbook, all citizens are solely referenced by their allocated identity number, and the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arkzpan's national animal is the Watchdogs, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Anarcho-Syndicalism.

Arkzpan is ranked 199,503rd in the world and 5,157th in the West Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring -7.07 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
