The Nine Quadrillion Square Km of Arlens Apartment is a huge, safe nation, ruled by A̲͉r̪̯̋̓le̥̲̺͋͐ͯn with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 874 million roommates hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ██████. The average income tax rate is 58.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient apartmental economy, worth 88.5 trillion Hugs a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 101,287 Hugs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.
Busy commuters no longer hear the cries of "I want some more!" on the nation's streets, small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, major cities shut down as their local sports team takes to the field every day, and once-vitriolic celebrity chefs are now known for giving encouraging hugs to aspiring cooks. Crime is totally unknown. Arlens Apartment's national animal is the ❤Cuddly❤, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
