The Republic of Armsgrad is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the first Oligarch with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, cheerful population of 12.436 billion Armsgradians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Armsport. The average income tax rate is 2.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Armsgradian economy, worth a remarkable 4,933 trillion New Dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 396,750 New Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Octogenarian swimsuit models insist that they've still got it, the slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework, large sections of Armsgrad have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there, and statue-sitting has replaced the stake-out as the dullest form of police duty. Crime is totally unknown. Armsgrad's national animal is the house cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Secularism.

Armsgrad is ranked 3,014th in the world and 31st in Europeia for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 22,585.23 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
