The Aaarghs of Aaargh is a massive, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 3.803 billion Aaarghians enjoy great social freedoms and frequent elections, where the majority of the populace regularly votes to increase its benefits at the expense of various hapless minorities.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Castle. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Aaarghian economy, worth 87.6 trillion aaarghs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 23,039 aaarghs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Aaargh has designated the Castle as its capital city, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, military spending is on the increase, and a referendum must be held in order for any new law to be passed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aaargh's national animal is the aaargh, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aaargh is ranked 133,779th in the world and 92nd in Shinka for Fattest Citizens, with 9.57 Obesity Rate.
