Middle Arinia

Population1.086 billion



The Democratic States of Middle Arinia is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.086 billion Middle Arinians 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 prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Social Policy, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lakelaside. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Middle Arinian economy, worth 52.4 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 48,251 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps, babies are a small but significant export, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, and Bigtopian interference in domestic elections is always democratically sanctioned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Middle Arinia's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Middle Arinia is ranked 23,391st in the world and 97th in The Union of Democratic States for Safest, scoring 110.92 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
