The Republic of Ariusgrad is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Arius with an even hand, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, anti-smoking policies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 21.613 billion Arians 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ariusgrad. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Ariusgradian economy, worth a remarkable 3,569 trillion philpesoes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 165,144 philpesoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ariusgrad isn't what it used to be, pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, the nation takes the world's poor and tired and the huddled Masses yearning to breathe free, and prisoners can't do number twos without their "toilet buddy" present. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ariusgrad's national animal is the kraken, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Ariusgrad is ranked 38,446th in the world and 14th in Philippines for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 7,862.7 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
