The Autonomous Communes of Ariddia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by James Johnson with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 39.079 billion Ariddians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of RÍvane. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The enormous but sluggish Ariddian economy, worth a remarkable 2,768 trillion Ariddian credits a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 70,854 Ariddian credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, Ariddian husbands are dead good at fathering kids, citizens who plan overseas vacations are barred from running for political office, and an epidemic of unpopped kernels causes movie goers to gnash their teeth. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ariddia's national animal is the platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Ariddia is ranked 238,156th in the world and 3rd in Snootland for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -14.51 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
