The Coastal Republic of Aruia is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Chief of Senate Alisa Edal with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.851 billion Aruians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, 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 63.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Aruian economy, worth 776 trillion Ranoes a year, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 87,724 Ranoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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 23,578th in the world and 59th in The Western Isles for Highest Poor Incomes, with 66,447.77 Standard Monetary Units.
