The Illusory Spectre of Arrivederci is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by General Gorlomi with a fair hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, smutty television, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 14.143 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, with Environment, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, 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 5,245 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 notable. Average income is an amazing 370,886 Gold Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, General Gorlomi's office is running a trade deficit of midnight oil, restaurateurs put a lot of effort into persuading customers to accept wafer-thin mints, and companies have begun running campaigns to stop people from remembering their brand name. Crime is totally unknown. Arrivederci's national animal is the Vampiric Narwhal, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Arrivederci is ranked 18,869th in the world and 420th in The North Pacific for Largest Populations, with 14.1 billion Capita.
