The Imperial Free City of Aaraksburg is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by King Jason XIX Stormsong with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ubiquitous missile silos, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.267 billion Aarakians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aaraksburg. The average income tax rate is 33.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Aarakian economy, worth 461 trillion Forgestones a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 87,553 Forgestones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, the government is cutting back on the number of political prisoners executed each year, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, and King Jason XIX Stormsong can often be seen hanging around playgrounds chatting with the kids. Crime is totally unknown. Aaraksburg's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Pax Septem.

Aaraksburg is ranked 90,023rd in the world and 27th in The Wolf Clan for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 2,000.12 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
