The Coastal Republic of Aruia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Chief of Senate Alisa Edal with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.829 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 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Aruian economy, worth 841 trillion Ranoes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is 85,596 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 184,089th in the world and 147th in The Western Isles for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -3.74 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
