Regional Influence: Shoeshiner

Location: The North Pacific



Population979 million


The Republic of Arjuna is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its teetotalling pirates, prohibition of alcohol, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 979 million Arjunans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Arjunan economy, worth 98.4 trillion Rupees a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 100,500 Rupees, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Hypochondriacs demand treatment for genetic disorders they don't have, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, street graffiti indicates the political party that dominates a neighborhood, and penurious citizens die from easily remedied ailments because they aren't 'taking enough initiative'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Arjuna's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Arjuna is ranked 48,940th in the world and 2,240th in The North Pacific for Nudest, with 162.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
