The Consitutional Diarchy of Argorinthia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Queen Elodie de Devereaux-Avignon with a fair hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, otherworldly petting zoo, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.089 billion Argorinthians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of High Charity. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Argorinthian economy, worth a remarkable 1,931 trillion Drachmeis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 238,792 Drachmeis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, and the tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Argorinthia's national animal is the Dire wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Argorinthian Reformed Protestantism.

Argorinthia is ranked 1,274th in the world and 3rd in Taijitu for Smartest Citizens, with 195.58 Quips Per Hour.
