The Republic of Aranan is a massive, safe nation, ruled by The Collective Of Aranan with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, digital currency, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.819 billion Arananians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Home Of Aranan. The average income tax rate is 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Arananian economy, worth 108 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 59,641 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government supplies ragtag bands of resistance fighters in exchange for vague promises of future payment, the Arananian delegation to the World Assembly is having a hard time convincing people that international law will "pay for itself somehow...", traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, and weapons produced by newly nationalized armaments factories have been found to contain sawdust instead of gunpowder. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aranan's national animal is the parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secularism.

Aranan is ranked 47,166th in the world and 2,359th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 58.63 on the Human Development Index.
