The Republic of Arii Matamoe is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, parental licensing program, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.459 billion Arii Matamoeans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 24.5%.

The very strong Arii Matamoean economy, worth 113 trillion guilders a year, is led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 77,551 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, there are traffic jams at sea as diligent customs officers check every part of every ship, pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, and the aphorism "there's no need to argue" has been dismissed by Arii Matamoeans. Crime is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Arii Matamoe's national animal is the penguin, which can occasionally be seen avoiding garbage in the nation's murky oceans.

Arii Matamoe is ranked 44,380th in the world and 6th in NationStates Museum of Art for Highest Crime Rates, with 14.66 crimes per hour.
