The Illusory Spectre of Arrivederci is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by General Gorlomi with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 12.527 billion Arrivedercians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Industry, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Welfare and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Margheriti. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Arrivedercian economy, worth a remarkable 4,798 trillion Gold Coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an amazing 383,065 Gold Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The seats at the back of the parliament are reserved for indigenous ministers, it's been a banner year for local vexillology, elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, and internet searches for the inventor of the three-wheeled steam-powered Arrivedercian weed picker are way up. Crime is totally unknown. Arrivederci's national animal is the Vampire Narwhal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Christianity.

Arrivederci is ranked 151,375th in the world and 6,370th in The North Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.4 Crimes Per Hour.
