LeaderPrime Minister Yaseen


The Kingdom of Arklanda is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Prime Minister Yaseen with an even hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, avowedly heterosexual populace, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, devout population of 1.283 billion Ardelarkians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mintakaville. The average income tax rate is 90.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ardelarkian economy, worth 113 trillion Kwarts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving. Average income is 88,264 Kwarts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Park rangers struggle to deal with a rash of stolen pic-a-nic baskets, the government regularly publishes lengthy reports on its own excessive recordkeeping, the government is proud to report that ten percent of all tax revenue goes to funding suspected terrorist organizations, and the official Ardelarkian Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child. 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 Ants, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Arklanda is ranked 17,080th in the world and 128th in Forest for Largest Governments, scoring 27.93 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
