The Empire of Araragi is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Koyomi with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.163 billion Araragians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiss-Shot Acerora Orion Hato Undaburedo. The average income tax rate is 84.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Araragian economy, worth 216 trillion Sats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 100,229 Sats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government maintains a Department of Skulduggery, the reams of paperwork accompanying any electronic item are a recognised contributor to national deforestation, teenagers are told they're not thinking about sex enough, and devotion to God is only skin-deep. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Araragi's national animal is the Demon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Anime.

Araragi is ranked 239,563rd in the world and 9,854th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -11.4 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
