The Constitutional Monarchy of Arpino is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Emperor Biritui with an iron fist, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 6.181 billion Arpinogon are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arp. The average income tax rate is 98.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Arpino economy, worth a remarkable 1,267 trillion Damats a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 205,049 Damats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, a life spent suffering in silence is considered noble, torture is illegal, and standing on a chair to reach a top shelf is seen as evidence of narcissistic personality disorder. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arpino's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Various Spiritualisms.

Arpino is ranked 185,577th in the world and 6,466th in Lazarus for Least Corrupt Governments, with 89.72 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
