The Republic of Arguistan is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Rector Jos Soj with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.264 billion Arguistanis hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Natsiugra. The average income tax rate is 87.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arguistanian economy, worth 393 trillion Arguis a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 120,659 Arguis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

90% of active duty AAF personnel have been laid off and replaced by robot kill-drones, any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arguistan's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arguistan is ranked 13,687th in the world and 204th in Europe for Lowest Crime Rates, with 88.56 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
