The Republic of Arlenton is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the President of Arlenton with an iron fist, and notable for its smutty television, national health service, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 13.805 billion Arlentans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Social Policy and Environment not funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Charleston. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Arlentan economy, worth a remarkable 3,140 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 227,454 Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,552,722 per year while the poor average 12,070, a ratio of 128 to 1.

Labour strikes are routinely squashed by police, it's a hard-knock life for the orphans doing factory work for a pittance, the industries of Arlenton are coughing all the way to the bank, and The President of Arlenton has been known to make speeches in fishing waders. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Arlenton's national animal is the Arlenton Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Christianity.

Arlenton is ranked 174,613th in the world and 3rd in The Capitalist Alliance for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -39.87 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
