The Collegium of Arranta is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Chancellor Jurgen Keppler with a fair hand, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, intelligent population of 8.334 billion Arrantans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Education, although the Environment and Commerce are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Administration Hall. The average income tax rate is 43%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages, Arranta's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, and consumption of cat memes has skyrocketed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arranta's national animal is the mysterious pie filling, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Reformed Omnianism, and its currency is the credit.

Arranta is ranked 1st in Fidelia and 9,176th in the world for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring 13 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
