The Democratic Republic of Arpol is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its frequent executions, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 366 million Genossis 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 Healthcare, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Arpolian economy, worth 3.76 trillion marks 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 mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Retail. Average income is 10,275 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young girls aren't having a ball but they are enjoying themselves, the military is on a massive recruiting drive in advance of an invasion of Brasilistan, helicopter parenting is on the rise, and carpet bombing has decimated Brasilistan's landscape and population. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arpol's national animal is the sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arpol is ranked 92,085th in the world and 699th in The Communist Bloc for Highest Drug Use, scoring 76.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
