The Voiceless Wilderness of Arudis is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Evangeline with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and prohibition of alcohol. The compassionate, cheerful population of 11.386 billion Arudites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tsukinami. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Arudisian economy, worth a remarkable 2,052 trillion Breadsticks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 180,231 Breadsticks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The well-to-do in Grace of Gaia are never on time for important appointments, confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges, royal mothers accustomed to baby-talk assure the troops "we gweatly wespect your service; yes, we do", and you're never too young to learn how to lie with confidence. Crime is totally unknown. Arudis's national animal is the Amarathine Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Arudis is ranked 1,698th in the world and 3rd in Grace of Gaia for Most Beautiful Environments, with 3,596.83 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
