The Coastal Republic of Aruia is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by President Sandros De'Russo with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.46 billion Aruians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ar'ksen City. The average income tax rate is 67.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Aruian economy, worth 886 trillion Ranoes a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is 84,747 Ranoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Nose plugs are the latest Aruian fashion accessory, criminals lock themselves in their mums' basements to avoid prison, the only thing slower than the economy is the exchange where it's managed, and all recreational drugs are legal. Crime is totally unknown. Aruia's national animal is the hoopoe bird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aruia is ranked 94,236th in the world and 106th in The Western Isles for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 3,482.29 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
