Aria Heart

Population271 million



The Empire of Aria Heart is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 271 million Arias are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ereve. The average income tax rate is 52.9%.

The powerhouse Arian economy, worth 25.8 trillion Lunes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 95,367 Lunes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

The education system has gotten a recent boost in spending, most of the nation's wealthy aristocrats are dentists, streakers swamp all public events in order to bare it all, and children who write letters to Santa Claus end up in straitjackets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aria Heart's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aria Heart is ranked 106,831st in the world and 5,539th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 37.56 on the Rand Index.
