The Illusory Spectre of Arrivederci is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by General Gorlomi with a fair hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, conspicuous electricity pylons, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 8.651 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 3,107 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 common. Average income is an amazing 359,152 Gold Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Powerful x-ray machines used by the Customs Department can see into the homes of nearby residents, laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, coffee cups have grown in size to accommodate the huge ingredients list, and demand for gourmet white truffles is on the rise. 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 5,462nd in the world and 204th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 525,761.71 Standard Monetary Units.
