The Empire of Araragi is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 709 million Araragians 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 Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiss-Shot Acerora Orion Hato Undaburedo. The average income tax rate is 78.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Araragian economy, worth 71.3 trillion Sats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 100,605 Sats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has ordered a moratorium on referenda, orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, and claiming that "my cousin said it was legal" is a common courtroom defense. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Araragi's national animal is the Apparition, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Araragi is ranked 101,449th in the world and 5,263rd in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 18.21 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
