The Principality of Arr is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Zrkjic Ohno with an even hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, national health service, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cheerful population of 7.428 billion Arrians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Middle of Nowhere. The average income tax rate is 86.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arrian economy, worth a remarkable 1,402 trillion kikakus a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 188,810 kikakus, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, the government is washing its hands of alleged corruption, and fire stations and hospitals can't deploy emergency vehicles because badly parked cars block them in. Crime is totally unknown. Arr's national animal is the penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Arr is ranked 31,888th in the world and 283rd in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 81.65 law-abiding acts per hour.
