The Noice of Arvan Irawer is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Miguel Faulkner with a fair hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 793 million Arvans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arvan Irawer City. The average income tax rate is 57.4%.

The thriving Arvan economy, worth 63.9 trillion White Coins a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 80,642 White Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, disadvantaged youths often commit felonies to enhance their educational prospects, and the contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Arvan Irawer. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arvan Irawer's national animal is the Korax, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arvan Irawer is ranked 125,116th in the world and 4,426th in the South Pacific for Highest Disposable Incomes, with 34,353.87 Standard Monetary Units.
