The Accursed One of Armaros is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by joWhatup with an iron fist, and remarkable for its infamous sell-swords and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.429 billion Armarosians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pits of Shadow. The average income tax rate is 29.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Armarosian economy, worth 109 trillion Monies a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 44,901 Monies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Burglary is widely regarded as the national sport, 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, children are disappointed to learn that cavemen never had a yabba-dabba-doo time riding dinosaurs to work, and Armarosians incessantly needle their doctors for relief. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Armaros's national animal is the Wolf, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is The Path of Cruor.

Armaros is ranked 135,580th in the world and 21st in Unknown for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 49.01 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
