The Imperial Dominion of Arithei is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Lord Lanair with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, infamous sell-swords, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 40 billion Arithites hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alqualondë. The average income tax rate is 84.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aritheian economy, worth an astonishing 15,957 trillion Drachmas a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 398,929 Drachmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The government is funding experimental battery technology while the power grid continues to crumble, the Grinder at Fat Sal's Deli and Recycling Center is a national institution, Aritheian novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Lord Lanair, and people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy. Crime is totally unknown. Arithei's national animal is the Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arithei is ranked 261,356th in the world and 886th in NationStates for Most Patriotic, with 0.64 flags saluted per person per day.
