The Humanoid Republic of Aragesh is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Joe Hart with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, national health service, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 22.262 billion Arageshians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Houston TX. The average income tax rate is 79.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arageshian economy, worth a remarkable 7,169 trillion Yuxans a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an amazing 322,055 Yuxans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Children wondering what happens to pets after they die are shown where the compost heap is, the "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture, just as students finish their homework it's time for school, and children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again. Crime is totally unknown. Aragesh's national animal is the Sea Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Humanism.

Aragesh is ranked 591st in the world and 11th in Balder for Most Developed, scoring 98.75 on the Human Development Index.
