The Principality of Arayas is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Prince Erik with an iron fist, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 983 million Aryans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Education are also considered important, while Social Policy and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Europa. The average income tax rate is 52.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Aryan economy, worth 93.2 trillion Francs a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,843 Francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The airship business has been driven out of the country by strict regulations and high fines, more money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, stores employing more than 100 employees are required to be at least twenty miles from any competitor, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arayas's national animal is the Silver Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Arayas is ranked 170,654th in the world and 28th in The Iron Confederacy for Most Inclusive, scoring 9.14 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
