The Sultanate of Arnasas is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Al Mahdi with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, unlimited-speed roads, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.72 billion Arnasasians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Al-Aqsha. The average income tax rate is 85.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Arnasasian economy, worth 251 trillion Rups a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 146,406 Rups, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Government-run screening operations remove embryos with severe genetic disorders, purple armbands are being issued to Violetists for ease of identification, in life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, and the military sees national borders more as guidelines than absolutes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arnasas's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Islam.

Arnasas is ranked 105,365th in the world and 4,671st in Lazarus for Most Income Equality, scoring 24.38 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
