The Illusory Spectre of Arrivederci is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by General Gorlomi with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, lack of airports, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 12.787 billion Arrivedercians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Margheriti. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Arrivedercian economy, worth a remarkable 4,815 trillion Gold Coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 376,561 Gold Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

Libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, children are sent to either religious or secular schools, people take government jobs for the frequent flier miles, and citizens often glare angrily at jet contrails. Crime is totally unknown. Arrivederci's national animal is the Vampiric Narwhal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Christianity.

Arrivederci is ranked 2,506th in the world and 100th in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 11,450.37 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
