Arnoobistan

The Kingdom of Arnoobistan is a large, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-working, cynical, devout population of 50 million Arnoobistanians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 19.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Arnoobistanian economy, worth 2.55 trillion Dinars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Soda Sales. Average income is 51,078 Dinars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Short shrift is being given to applications for political asylum from illegal immigrants, grumbling early morning commuters bemoan having to travel to work in the dark, nude art is becoming wildly popular, and drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arnoobistan's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Arnoobistan is ranked 52,384th in the world and 2,224th in the South Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 107.82 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
