The Planetary Confederacy of Arident is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Chancellor Algren with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 9.23 billion Aridi enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ithaca-II. The average income tax rate is 42.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Aridenti economy, worth a remarkable 1,508 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 163,478 Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

Hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, visitors to Violet Rock City are stunned to learn that they must memorize the "99 Principles" before entering, adverts depict men giving birth while cursing the women who got them into trouble, and a rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows. Crime is totally unknown. Arident's national animal is the Red Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arident is ranked 17,582nd in the world and 6th in Solid Kingdom for Lowest Crime Rates, with 83.84 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
