LeaderJames Johnson


The Kingdom of Arinteriswith is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by James Johnson with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 2.402 billion Arinteriswithians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Freedom. The average income tax rate is 83.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arinteriswithian economy, worth 392 trillion Freeds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 163,543 Freeds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Great Arinteriswithian Melting Pot boils out ethnic heritage, government officials are held to the highest standard of morality, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, and vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arinteriswith's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Arinteriswith is ranked 63,733rd in the world and 1,795th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,293.35 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
