The Republic of Arguistan is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Rector Jos Soj with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.365 billion Arguistanis hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Natsiugra. The average income tax rate is 88.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arguistanian economy, worth 410 trillion Arguis a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 121,983 Arguis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, Rector Jos Soj's used car is held together by bumper stickers that support the opposition, there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', and political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arguistan's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arguistan is ranked 164,189th in the world and 713th in Europe for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2.2 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
