The Democratic Federation of Arpasia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by NatanaŽl Bonhomme with an iron fist, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, compulsory vegetarianism, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.98 billion Arpasians 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 enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Philippeaux. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Arpasian economy, worth 201 trillion Arpasian Raels a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 101,540 Arpasian Raels, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 354,422 per year while the poor average 21,161, a ratio of 16.7 to 1.

Lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, matryoshka dolls resembling nested Death Stars are commonly sold, the Arpasian war navy contains an oddly large number of luxury yachts and cruise liners, and university graduates and new home-owners toil in labour camps to work off their debts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arpasia's national animal is the Buffalo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ispatian Christianity.

Arpasia is ranked 232,287th in the world and 1,559th in 10000 Islands for Most Income Equality, scoring 5.97 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
