Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Kingdom of Arlord is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its burgeoning Tiger population. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 501 million Arlordians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 37.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Arlordian economy, worth 19.0 trillion Terlors a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Trout Farming, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 37,873 Terlors, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest growing field, citizens cannot change their light bulbs without approval from an international committee, the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, and a video of Leader wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arlord's national animal is the Tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arlord is ranked 139,004th in the world and 4,765th in Lazarus for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 52,458.02 Standard Monetary Units.
