The State of Ariwana is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by President Jokowi Tulodo with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate population of 1.276 billion Ariwanese are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jakartat. The average income tax rate is 73.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ariwanese economy, worth 126 trillion Silventers 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 99,177 Silventers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons, euthanasia is illegal, only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, and the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Ariwana after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ariwana's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Monotheism.

Ariwana is ranked 164,560th in the world and 8,894th in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -13.71 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
