The Republic of Aranan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The Collective Of Aranan with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate population of 1.978 billion Arananians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Home Of Aranan. The average income tax rate is 71.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Arananian economy, worth 119 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 60,194 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Refugees from other nations are flocking to Aranan's border, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany The Collective Of Aranan to meetings with foreign heads of state, the words 'private' and 'enterprise' must never appear in the same sentence, and the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aranan's national animal is the parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secularism.

Aranan is ranked 519th in the world and 370th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 216 Valid Endorsements.
