The Republic of Arlenton is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by the President of Arlenton with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, national health service, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 9.635 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 2,158 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 223,992 Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,816,373 per year while the poor average 6,129, a ratio of 296 to 1.

The nation's air missiles have killed thousands of Brasilistan military personnel, elite teams of assassins have been sent into Brasilistan, the armed forces have designated 'murder teams' that root out rebels in Brasilistan, and captured Brasilistani POWs are staying in 5-star hotels. 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 2,378th in the world and 1st in The Capitalist Alliance for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 11,505.1 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
