Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democracy of Arohania is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.204 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, Social Policy, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Administration and Spirituality are ignored. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The large but sluggish Arohanian economy, worth 353 trillion Brain Meatss 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 57,051 Brain Meatss, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, the Arohania Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, and banana distribution among collective farm workers is an important topic in public discourse. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arohania's national animal is the Moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arohania is ranked 174,781st in the world and 1st in Aroha Mai for Most Devout, with 4.11 Prayers Per Hour.
