The Imperial Dominion of Arithei is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Lord Lanair with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 36.11 billion Arithites hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alqualondë. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aritheian economy, worth an astonishing 13,716 trillion Drachmas a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 379,853 Drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's forests are full of treasure hunters in military-grade survival gear, traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers, Aritheian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, and unpackaged foodstuffs rot on store shelves. Crime is totally unknown. Arithei's national animal is the Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arithei is ranked 207,705th in the world and 449th in NationStates for Most Avoided, scoring 0.15 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
