The Democratic Federation of Arpasia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by NatanaŽl Bonhomme with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, frequent executions, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.956 billion Arpasians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Philippeaux. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Arpasian economy, worth 195 trillion Arpasian Raels a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 99,880 Arpasian Raels, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 347,417 per year while the poor average 20,925, a ratio of 16.6 to 1.

Frequent broken zippers have resulted in safety pins making a fashion comeback, machine gun nests are the latest must-have gardening trend, virtually all of the country's economic activity takes place in Philippeaux, and spotted owl meat is used as bait to lure wolves into traps. 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 144,270th in the world and 905th in 10000 Islands for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero valid endorsements.
