The Illusory Spectre of Arrivederci is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by General Gorlomi with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, conspicuous electricity pylons, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 7.422 billion Arrivedercians 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 minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Margheriti. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Arrivedercian economy, worth a remarkable 2,636 trillion Gold Coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 355,261 Gold Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Major boxing matches are held in government buildings, workers have their fruitcake and eat it too, Arrivedercians submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card, and foreign spirits are hard to find due to an abundance of "Cletus and Jim Bob's Homemade Arrivedercian Moonshine". Crime is totally unknown. Arrivederci's national animal is the Vampire Narwhal, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Arrivederci is ranked 44,736th in the world and 1,974th in The North Pacific for Most Extensive Public Healthcare, scoring 2,137.28 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.
