The Kingdom of Arklanda is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its anti-smoking policies, lack of airports, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, devout population of 1.088 billion Arklanders are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mintakaville. The average income tax rate is 85.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arklandan economy, worth 96.3 trillion Kwarts a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 88,540 Kwarts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, most citizens in Arklanda are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government, promising seven years of bad luck leads to seven years of community service, and holidaymakers sleep curled up on the floor as hotel beds are replaced with oversized bookcases. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arklanda's national animal is the Forest Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Arklanda is ranked 8,548th in the world and 48th in Forest for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 58.42 Whatever.
