The Coastal Republic of Aruia is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Valerio Delfalco with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.738 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 Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ar'ksen City. The average income tax rate is 42.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Aruian economy, worth 530 trillion Ranoes a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 92,491 Ranoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

It's been a banner year for local vexillology, motivational posters send motorists positive vibes in high-risk areas, there's a lot of smoke from the nation's "green economy", and delivery truck companies use hospital parking lots to store 16-wheelers. 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 165,640th in the world and 189th in The Western Isles for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -13.11 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
