The Democratic Federation of Arpasia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by NatanaŽl Bonhomme with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.999 billion Arpasians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Philippeaux. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Arpasian economy, worth 205 trillion Arpasian Raels a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 102,632 Arpasian Raels, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 361,374 per year while the poor average 21,105, a ratio of 17.1 to 1.

Millions of Arpasians are excellent swimmers, rag-wearing teachers are often mistaken for homeless people, small shoes often wash up on the beach, and religious people are committed to mental institutions for treatment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arpasia's national animal is the Buffalo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ispatian Christianity.

Arpasia is ranked 10,549th in the world and 101st in 10000 Islands for Most Patriotic, with 45.03 flags saluted per person per day.
