The Democracy of Arohania is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.829 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Social Policy are also considered important, while Defense and Spirituality aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 98.4%.

The large but sluggish Arohanian economy, worth 378 trillion Brain Meats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 48,318 Brain Meats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Only adults may purchase violent video games, human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, terrorists are on a first name basis with the officials that stamp their passports, and preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance. Crime is totally unknown. Arohania's national animal is the Moose, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arohania is ranked 6,917th in the world and 1st in Aroha Mai for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 335.82 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
