CapitalAroil City


The Republic of Aroil is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 800 million Aroilians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aroil City. The average income tax rate is 65.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Aroilian economy, worth 65.4 trillion Garsons a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 81,784 Garsons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Athletic teenagers are among the wealthiest members of society, surrogate mothers are encouraged to refer to their wombs as 'rental space', people who stay late at the office often come home to find their own funeral being planned, and guide dogs for the blind have been seen using government websites. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aroil's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aroil is ranked 29,357th in the world and 57th in The Order of the Grey Wardens for Most Beautiful Environments, with 812.46 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
