The Greatest Country of Arifiyyah is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sultan Arif Nazhim Shah with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, devout population of 3.417 billion Arifians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Medina Arif. The average income tax rate is 73.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arifian economy, worth 458 trillion Arif Ringgits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 134,152 Arif Ringgits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The government is spending billions of taxpayer Arif Ringgits to support "struggling" industries, the Treasury has been accused of flushing money down the toilet, subsidisation of Big Pharma has stopped many corporate executives from having to sell their second homes, and interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBA Governor goes house hunting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arifiyyah's national animal is the Orangutan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Arifiyyah is ranked 22,068th in the world and 424th in the West Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 74,381.09 Standard Monetary Units.
