The Kingdom of Arinteriswith is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by James Johnson with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, complete lack of prisons, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 3.921 billion Arinteriswithians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Freedom. The average income tax rate is 92.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arinteriswithian economy, worth 731 trillion Freeds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 186,672 Freeds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police, and much of Arinteriswith's computer network is controlled by a rampant artificial intelligence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arinteriswith's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Buddhism.

Arinteriswith is ranked 5,532nd in the world and 144th in the Rejected Realms for Longest Average Lifespans, with 92.2 Years.
