The Democratic Federation of Arpasia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by NatanaŽl Bonhomme with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 2.237 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Philippeaux. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Arpasian economy, worth 246 trillion Arpasian Raels a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 110,201 Arpasian Raels, with the richest citizens earning 6.7 times as much as the poorest.

Anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves, no cul-de-sac or trailer park is complete without a gambling parlor, counselors diagnose their clients with motherboard complexes, and fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back. 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 28,719th in the world and 379th in 10000 Islands for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 6,581.7 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
