The Allied States of New Aramund is a small, genial nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 36 million New Aramundians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 47.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped New Aramundian economy, worth 1.19 trillion Kronor a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 33,179 Kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every workday begins with group therapy, politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, and New Aramundians submit requests for a date in writing with an enclosed RSVP card. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Aramund's national animal is the Tauntaun.

New Aramund is ranked 101,476th in the world and 12th in 2101 for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 549.11 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
