The Empire of -Arene is a massive, safe nation, ruled by PM Asva Kaloka with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.097 billion Kawyudhas are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bhaskara. The average income tax rate is 68.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Kawyudhan economy, worth 229 trillion Dhanas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 109,392 Dhanas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Flash floods that dams could have controlled regularly ravage small towns in mountain valleys, panic-stricken royals insist a stray ball in their garden is an emergency, Bhaskara has restaurants serving every meat from aardvark to zebra, and tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the -Arene Blood Tithe. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. -Arene's national animal is the Birb, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Thatikanism.

-Arene is ranked 25,925th in the world and 1,267th in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 53.4 quips per hour.
