The Democratic Federation of Arpasia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by NatanaŽl Bonhomme with an iron fist, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.006 billion Arpasians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Philippeaux. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Arpasian economy, worth 209 trillion Arpasian Raels a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 104,536 Arpasian Raels, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 343,941 per year while the poor average 23,808, a ratio of 14.4 to 1.

Religious people are committed to mental institutions for treatment, you can check out of an asylum if you've changed your mind, aspiring pilots must be personally vetted by the Minister of Transportation before receiving their license, and there's often a little nagging voice suggesting that parents aren't keeping their kids safe. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arpasia's national animal is the Buffalo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ispatian Christianity.

Arpasia is ranked 15,680th in the world and 157th in 10000 Islands for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 343,941 Standard Monetary Units.
