The Republic of Aratani is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Sarsh with an even hand, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords, pith helmet sales, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working population of 1.005 billion Aratanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kaito. The average income tax rate is 55.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Aratanian economy, worth 101 trillion kans a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 101,298 kans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tampons are used as cheap fishing bobbers, the new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves, the Father of the House has been in office just shy of a fortnight, and the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aratani's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aratani is ranked 9,196th in the world and 449th in The North Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 55.21 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
