The Empire of Areya is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chaol with an iron fist, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, pith helmet sales, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.921 billion Areyans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Maethrillian. The average income tax rate is 92.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Areyan economy, worth 501 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 260,810 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Romantic sunsets are no longer interrupted by explosions and monstrous roars, people across the world seek to be healthier by eliminating carbs, all footpaths have tollbooths, and the term "Native Areyan" has been redefined as anyone with the same skin color as the majority. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Areya's national animal is the wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Areya is ranked 256,415th in the world and 343rd in The Free Nations Region for Least Corrupt Governments, with 5.75 percentage of bribes refused.
