The Unspeakably Zen Republic of Aroa is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Flying Ninja with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, anti-smoking policies, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 16.495 billion Aroans 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mountain Dojo. The average income tax rate is 46.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aroan economy, worth a remarkable 1,750 trillion anoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 106,102 anoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, military officers are given medals for disobeying orders, more than one company makes the board game Monopoly, and the 'sing-a-long with The Flying Ninja' album is a popular souvenir. Crime is totally unknown. Aroa's national animal is the Afroed Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aroa is ranked 15,641st in the world and 834th in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.53 Years.
