Arlens Apartment

Population1.597 billion

FaithThe Bounty of the Sea


The Ten Quadrillion Square Km of Arlens Apartment is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Terrina with a fair hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.597 billion roommates are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ██████. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient apartmental economy, worth 191 trillion Beatpoints 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 significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 120,144 Beatpoints, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Paranoid museum guards keep a lookout for any animated displays attempting to escape the premises after dark, a traveller who once stubbed a toe on an Air Brancaland flight has been offered asylum, not many kids know Shakespeare's Hamlet but most of them have seen unofficial sequel Hamlet III - The Search For Osric, and the government is continually probing the galaxy in search of alien life. Crime is totally unknown. Arlens Apartment's national animal is the ❤Cuddly❤, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Bounty of the Sea.

Arlens Apartment is ranked 196,849th in the world and 8,538th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -354.02 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
