The Illusory Spectre of Arrivederci is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by General Gorlomi with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 12.516 billion Arrivedercians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Margheriti. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Arrivedercian economy, worth a remarkable 4,794 trillion Gold Coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 383,051 Gold Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

A tax exemption has created a new hunger for octogenarian millionaires dating women 60 years their younger, General Gorlomi's recent "I have a dream that we will fight them by raking muck on the beaches" speech seems a little derivative to many, doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, and the seats at the back of the parliament are reserved for indigenous ministers. Crime is totally unknown. Arrivederci's national animal is the Vampire Narwhal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Christianity.

Arrivederci is ranked 206,432nd in the world and 9,116th in The North Pacific for Fattest Citizens, with 1.97 Obesity Rate.
