The Prefectures of Aradalyst is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Council of Arad with an even hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, sprawling nuclear power plants, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.074 billion Aradalytes are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry and Administration are also considered important, while International Aid and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aradalore-Kennsha. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Aradalytian economy, worth 338 trillion Aradal Dinars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Gambling, and Information Technology. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 163,439 Aradal Dinars, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

Corporations claim the third ounce of any metal traded in a wicker-cone on the Sunday of a full moon as a charitable expense, the government has declared that too much democracy gets in the way of sensible leadership, access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, and industry tycoons rarely hide their misdeeds due to the government's habit of bailing them out. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Aradalyst's national animal is the Otter, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Shinto.

Aradalyst is ranked 171,828th in the world and 14th in The Israeli Free Front for Smartest Citizens, with 24.44 quips per hour.
