The Illusory Spectre of Arrivederci is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by General Gorlomi with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, daily referendums, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 9.192 billion Arrivedercians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare and Defense aren't funded at all. 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 3,292 trillion Gold Coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 358,184 Gold Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations, stockbrokers dream of getting rich by writing textbooks, pawn shop reality shows dominate basic cable, and the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies. 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 159,394th in the world and 1st in Arrivedercian Isles for Nicest Citizens, with 0.18 Average Smiles Per Day.
