The Grand Nation of Araraukar is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its lack of airports, parental licensing program, and national health service. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 29.216 billion Araraukarians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Araukar City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but sluggish Araraukarian economy, worth a remarkable 2,975 trillion rauks a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 101,840 rauks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

No one engages in 'locker room talk' any more, the government confiscates candy from babies for 'the greater good' of the nation, children wondering what happens to pets after they die are shown where the compost heap is, and first-time moms are expected to be experienced parents from day one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Araraukar's national animal is the Jammydragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Araraukar is ranked 254,917th in the world and 7,026th in Osiris for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.19 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
