The Allied States of Arugan is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its national health service, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-working, devout population of 204 million Aruganians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 32.3%.
The very strong Aruganian economy, worth 15.7 trillion Cotans a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 76,825 Cotans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.
Unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, glassy-eyed Aruganian wives lifelessly chant "I love you" on command, and rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons. Crime is totally unknown. Arugan's national animal is the Bull, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
