The Democratic States of Arimfexapus is a colossal, genial nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, sprawling nuclear power plants, and infamous sell-swords. The compassionate, hard-working population of 5.289 billion Arimfexapusians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Talon. The average income tax rate is 72.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arimfexapusian economy, worth 779 trillion Genjis a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 147,309 Genjis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Many mayors are barely in office before being kicked out for minor parking violations, young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, and traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arimfexapus's national animal is the Mako, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Arimfexapus is ranked 58,123rd in the world and 2,496th in Balder for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
