The Shakugan of Ariusgrad is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Arius of Alexandria with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, zero percent divorce rate, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 25.124 billion Arians 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ariusburg. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Ariusgradian economy, worth a remarkable 4,134 trillion denarii a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 164,571 denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Weather reports simply advise Arians to 'look outside', psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Arius of Alexandria to meetings with foreign heads of state, the comic book series 'Arius of Alexandria and the Villainous Corporate Cronies' is a best-seller, and the cruise missile launchers on the field hospital roof are purely deterrent in purpose. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ariusgrad's national animal is the kraken, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Ariusgrad is ranked 140,300th in the world and 57th in Philippines for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 5,816.54 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
