The Imperial Dominion of Arithei is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Lanair with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 37.575 billion Arithites hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Environment and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alqualondë. The average income tax rate is 88.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aritheian economy, worth an astonishing 14,602 trillion Drachmas a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 388,613 Drachmas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company, citizens are strongly encouraged to breathe less so as to limit the carbon footprint, politicians are fired for opening subjective statements with "I believe", and paralegals spend all day Hewlett-Packing attorneys' law briefs. Crime is totally unknown. Arithei's national animal is the Lynx, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arithei is ranked 242,468th in the world and 420th in NationStates for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 16.95 Whatever.
