The Federal Republic of Argin is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by King Jacob Snow with a fair hand, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 6.389 billion Arginians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Uzoa Heights. The average income tax rate is 79.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arginian economy, worth a remarkable 1,032 trillion Curiqs a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 161,632 Curiqs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, atheism is seen as a prerequisite for political power, coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops, and Arginian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect. Crime is totally unknown. Argin's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is None.

Argin is ranked 159,547th in the world and 116th in Conifer for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -154.56 on the Hayek Index.
