The Voiceless Wilderness of Arudis is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Evangeline with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cheerful population of 9.134 billion Arudites are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tsukinami. The average income tax rate is 97.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Arudisian economy, worth a remarkable 1,636 trillion Breadsticks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 179,219 Breadsticks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The well-to-do in Grace of Gaia are never on time for important appointments, confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges, royal mothers accustomed to baby-talk assure the troops "we gweatly wespect your service; yes, we do", and you're never too young to learn how to lie with confidence. Crime is totally unknown. Arudis's national animal is the Amarathine Bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Arudis is ranked 4,044th in the world and 1st in Grace of Gaia for Most Influential, scoring 19,839 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
