Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Kingdom of Arigentina is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by King Pontufex the Pious with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, triple-decker prams, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.627 billion Arigentines are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.8%.

The all-consuming Arigentine economy, worth 437 trillion crowns a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 94,585 crowns, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 397,138 per year while the poor average 14,640, a ratio of 27.1 to 1.

Door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', public shaming is the bedrock of Arigentine society, personal injury lawyers are demanding compensation from the government after recent reductions in manufacturer liability, and euthanasia is illegal. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Arigentina's national animal is the koala, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Arigentina is ranked 20,244th in the world and 4th in My World for Most Authoritarian, with 1.44 Stalins.
