The Community of Arboriana is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, soft-spoken computers, and restrictive gun laws. The quiet, industrious population of 719 million Arborianans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 31.9%.

The sizeable but inefficient Arborianan economy, worth 30.8 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 42,769 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings, the government is spending millions on alternative clean-burning fuels, and citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arboriana's national animal is the Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arboriana is ranked 41,797th in the world and 2,400th in Osiris for Most Cultured, scoring 70 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
