The Republic of Ariusgrad is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Arius with an iron fist, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, zero percent divorce rate, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful, devout population of 18.109 billion Arians 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ariusgrad. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ariusgradian economy, worth a remarkable 2,956 trillion philpesoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 163,271 philpesoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Ariusgradian Space Agency, autopsies often involve only cursory examination, adverts depict men giving birth while cursing the women who got them into trouble, and traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers. 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 118,211th in the world and 45th in Philippines for Most Pro-Market, scoring 33 on the Rand Index.
