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 remarkable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 4.424 billion Arigentines are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 17.8%.

The powerhouse 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 extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 98,788 crowns, with the richest citizens earning 8.5 times as much as the poorest.

Folk singers have replaced personal injury lawyers in being ridiculed as "ambulance chasers", priceless Maxtopian artwork can often be found in executive bathrooms, the nation's government buildings are remarkable for being ugly concrete boxes, and corporations claim the third ounce of any metal traded in a wicker-cone on the Sunday of a full moon as a charitable expense. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. 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 160,668th in the world and 5th in My World for Longest Average Lifespans, with 29.38 Years.
