The Federated Commonwealth of Arenumberg is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Security Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The democratic, cheerful population of 33.199 billion Areians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tyropolis. The average income tax rate is 96.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Arenumbergian economy, worth a remarkable 7,355 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 221,563 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

A rusted hulk in Tyropolis harbour has been voted the worst eyesore in The Milky Way Galaxy, peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, and at least 1% of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs budget goes to Security Council's wardrobe. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arenumberg's national animal is the Apollonian Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arenumberg is ranked 196,743rd in the world and 20th in The Milky Way Galaxy for Most Primitive, scoring -364.35 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
