Takistan is a fictional middle eastern country in which ArmA 2: Operation Arrowhead and its DLC take place. It is the main setting of the Operation Arrowhead campaign, as well as the Crimson Lance and Black Gauntlet campaigns. It is a neighbor of Chernarus, an ex-Soviet republic featured in the first game. Like Chernarus, the map does not cover the entire country, but rather a part of it. The map is set in the Eastern part of Takistan.
The landscape is mostly a combination of rugged mountainous terrain and deserts. However, it has many fertile valleys, rich oilfields and a coltan mine which are important for the country's economy. Before the 1988 coup d' état and a subsequent civil war, Takistan was a kingdom.
