The Coastal Republic of Aruia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Chief of Senate Alisa Edal with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.359 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 Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ar'ksen City. The average income tax rate is 54.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Aruian economy, worth 783 trillion Ranoes a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 93,713 Ranoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Nose plugs are the latest Aruian fashion accessory, criminals lock themselves in their mums' basements to avoid prison, the only thing slower than the economy is the exchange where it's managed, and all recreational drugs are legal. Crime is totally unknown. Aruia's national animal is the hoopoe bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aruia is ranked 65,540th in the world and 31st in The Western Isles for Most Extreme, scoring 23.65 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
