The Allied States of Aranoff is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Swenson Von Strüpengard with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 6.757 billion Aranovians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aranova. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Aranovian economy, worth a remarkable 1,615 trillion Mangals a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 239,020 Mangals, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Hit TV show 'The eXecution Factor' is a critical success, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, restaurant owners fear visits from government officials more than the actual food critics, and more and more people are signing up for the government party. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Aranoff's national animal is the Roc, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Aranoff is ranked 6,906th in the world and 7th in International Democratic Union for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 33,344.04 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
