The Republic of Aratani is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Sarsh with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working population of 977 million Aratanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kaito. The average income tax rate is 54.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Aratanian economy, worth 98.4 trillion kans a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 100,756 kans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the Aratani Blood Tithe, traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, the world still seems flat to some people in space, and murderers with law degrees can be seen swinging the gavel in courts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aratani's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aratani is ranked 113,432nd in the world and 6,222nd in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.31 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
