The Socialist Republic of Arantiga is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Ciriaco Mediate with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, soft-spoken computers, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.196 billion Arantigans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sparleto. The average income tax rate is 84.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Arantigan economy, worth 199 trillion Talons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry. Average income is 90,721 Talons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's economic policy can be summed up as "Abort, Retry, Fail?", high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, the "Dreadnowt" is the pride and joy of the Arantigan Navy, and sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed. Crime is totally unknown. Arantiga's national animal is the Gryphon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arantiga is ranked 230,955th in the world and 99th in Equestria for Fattest Citizens, with 5.71 Obesity Rate.
