The Democratic Republic of Areast is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Joseph Schmoe with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons, digital currency, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.319 billion Areasteans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Areastopolis. The average income tax rate is 95.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Areastean economy, worth a remarkable 1,003 trillion arets a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 158,757 arets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

From the highest mountain to the deepest cave - one can always count on finding a good cell signal in Areast, standing on a chair to reach a top shelf is seen as evidence of narcissistic personality disorder, there's more vermin than ever on the metro, and evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Areast's national animal is the Bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Areast is ranked 1,655th in the world and 166th in The East Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 96 Valid Endorsements.
