The Democratic Republic of Ariree is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ramona Vonner with an even hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 9.459 billion Arireeans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, corrupt, liberal government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Industry, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yedo. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Arireean economy, worth a remarkable 1,563 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 165,334 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Yedo Film Festival recently voted 'Arireean Getting Hit By Football' as best film, wheelchair users complain it is nearly impossible for them to cross the road in Yedo, teachers are routinely tested to keep their jobs, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ariree's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Ariree is ranked 239,842nd in the world and 308th in Anteria for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.41 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
