The Karnasaur Meritocratic Federation (Sauralian: Unoran Miāgorīr Karnasus; KMF), colloquially known as Arkarnas ("Greater Karnas") was an interstellar state in the North Arm that existed from c. 40,000 to 1325 BDR. While it was officially a federation of self-governing prefectures, power in Arkarnas was in practice highly centralised. Over the forty millennia of its existence, it experienced numerous changes in governance and philosophy, but it and Karnasaur society at large consistently maintained a strict meritocratic hierarchy. Karnas, the homeworld of the Karnasaurs, served as the capital of the Federation. For thousands of years, the KMF was a galactic superpower, its territory extending across the North Arm and beyond. It was the first to attain this level of power since the fall of the Omni Empire. The Federation was also one of the founders of the First Galactic Senate. However, its relations with fellow Senate members in the latter years of its history deteriorated, ultimately leading to the Second Galactic War and Arkarnas' ultimate collapse. Following the disintegration of the KMF, the Karnasaurs themselves, their population decimated, withdrew into isolation on Karnas.
