The Unspeakably Zen Republic of Aroa is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Flying Ninja with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 13.305 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 36.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aroan economy, worth a remarkable 1,373 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 103,237 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 66,838th in the world and 3,367th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 130,899.12 Standard Monetary Units.
