The Republic of Arelplace is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Laddington McLad with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.829 billion Arelplaceans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bisulifan. The average income tax rate is 87.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Arelplacean economy, worth 662 trillion pelves a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 56,019 pelves, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Statues of famous citizens are erected or demolished on a purely partisan basis, many friends and relatives of Laddington McLad have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, white strait-jackets are the new orange jumpsuits, and advertisers scramble to sponsor the broadcast of Laddington McLad's most personal functions. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arelplace's national animal is the Arctic crow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
