The Constitutional Monarchy of Arpino is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Biritui with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, devout population of 5.083 billion Arpinogon are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arp. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Arpino economy, worth a remarkable 1,035 trillion Damats 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 Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 203,741 Damats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, the volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, the nation turns a blind eye to human rights abuses in its quest for athletic supremacy, and rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arpino's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Various Spiritualisms.

Arpino is ranked 78,751st in the world and 3,695th in The East Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 57.81 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
