The Illusory Spectre of Arrivederci is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by General Gorlomi with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 16.332 billion Arrivedercians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare and Defense receive no funds. 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 6,189 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. Average income is an amazing 379,001 Gold Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The number of judges has tripled in recent months, a milk bath costs more than bathing in money, corruption is a game of two halves, and national park visitors are reporting a rash of poison ivy sightings. Crime is totally unknown. Arrivederci's national animal is the Vampiric Narwhal, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Arrivederci is ranked 165,712th in the world and 8,407th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.7 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
