The Coastal Republic of Aruia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chief of Senate Alisa Edal with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.364 billion Aruians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, 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 54.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Aruian economy, worth 782 trillion Ranoes a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 93,583 Ranoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

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 73,850th in the world and 60th in The Western Isles for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 2,471.35 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
