The Shakugan of Ariusgrad is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Arius of Alexandria with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, prohibition of alcohol, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 22.826 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — 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 3,744 trillion denarii a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 164,024 denarii, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Gardeners must genetically test weeds for unique traits before digging them up, court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, Arius of Alexandria's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, and cane fights are a common sight in nursing homes. 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 9,113th in the world and 9th in Philippines for Most Inclusive, scoring 193.03 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
