LeaderPresident Arnou


The Republic of Arunika is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Arnou with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.097 billion Arunikans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eunoia. The average income tax rate is 30.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arunikan economy, worth 139 trillion Runes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 127,330 Runes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Arunikan husbands are dead good at fathering kids, government-run brothels can be found on every street corner, the hardest thing for a mining operation to dig through is government red tape, and expensive lawyers are hired to defend citizens in court for public urination charges against their pets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arunika's national animal is the Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arunika is ranked 181,352nd in the world and 5,886th in The East Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.89 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
