Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democracy of Arohania is a colossal, safe nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, daily referendums, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.752 billion Arohanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Social Policy also on the agenda, while Administration and Spirituality aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The large but sluggish Arohanian economy, worth 349 trillion Brain Meats a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 51,770 Brain Meats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Arohania City Times is sold out, bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage', and election results are often delayed for weeks to count the expat votes. Crime is totally unknown. Arohania's national animal is the Moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arohania is ranked 146,641st in the world and 1st in Aroha Mai for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.62 Crimes Per Hour.
