|Category: Civil Rights Lovefest|
Regional Influence: Vassal
Location: The Western Isles
|Leader||President Valerio Delfalco|
The Coastal Republic of Aruia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Valerio Delfalco with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 6.598 billion Aruians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ar'ksen City. The average income tax rate is 43.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Aruian economy, worth 653 trillion Ranoes a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 99,102 Ranoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.
Pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts, citizens finish cleaning up after the annual National Treasure Hunt just in time for the next one, nose plugs are the latest Aruian fashion accessory, and criminals lock themselves in their mums' basements to avoid prison. Crime is totally unknown. Aruia's national animal is the hoopoe bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
