Arlens Apartment

Population1.854 billion

FaithThe Bounty of the Sea


The Ten Quadrillion Square Km of Arlens Apartment is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Terrina with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.854 billion roommates hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ██████. The average income tax rate is 70.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient apartmental economy, worth 233 trillion Beatpoints 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 significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 126,011 Beatpoints, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Court verdicts are predictable to within a hundredth of a percentage point, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, hazmat suits are a common apartmental garb, and the government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in ██████ for fear of causing a fuss. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Arlens Apartment's national animal is the ❤Cuddly❤, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Bounty of the Sea.

Arlens Apartment is ranked 201,276th in the world and 9,019th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -72.08 on the Hayek Index.
