The Unspeakably Zen Republic of Aroa is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Flying Ninja with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic population of 12.736 billion Aroans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mountain Dojo. The average income tax rate is 35.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aroan economy, worth a remarkable 1,321 trillion anoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,767 anoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Most ambassadors from Aroa retire only a few years after being appointed, cash-strapped politicians frequently host bake sales to fund their campaigns, the Snapgram channel "Embarrassing Baby The Flying Ninja Pics" has made The Flying Ninja's mom a celebrity, and pictures of government employees with expensive Pearbooks 'working' on exotic beaches dominate local tabloids. Crime is totally unknown. Aroa's national animal is the Afroed Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aroa is ranked 119,283rd in the world and 6,757th in The North Pacific for Largest Timber Woodchipping Industry, scoring -3.46 on the Tasmanian Pulp Environmental Export Index.
