Arlens Apartment

Population1.892 billion

FaithThe Bounty of the Sea


The Ten Quadrillion Square Km of Arlens Apartment is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Terrina with a fair hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.892 billion roommates are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ██████. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient apartmental economy, worth 238 trillion Beatpoints 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 126,073 Beatpoints, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, hazmat suits are a common apartmental garb, the government is ignoring the latest terrorist atrocities in ██████ for fear of causing a fuss, and passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Arlens Apartment's national animal is the ❤Cuddly❤, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Bounty of the Sea.

Arlens Apartment is ranked 90,087th in the world and 4,480th in The North Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 186.58 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
