The Dictatorship of Argiva is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, soft-spoken computers, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 367 million Argivans 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 relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Perseverance. The average income tax rate is 14.1%.

The all-consuming Argivan economy, worth 38.9 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 106,119 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

It's best to decline if Leader offers to buy a round of drinks, the tools of the trade for landmine clearance appear to be copious amounts of gasoline and a box of matches, failed genetic experiments wreak havoc as they roam the countryside, and no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Argiva's national animal is the Argivan White Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Argiva is ranked 35,150th in the world and 1st in SimuNations for Most Armed, with 2.52 Weapons Per Person.
