The Empire of Aria Heart is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Yuri with an iron fist, and notable for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.852 billion Arias are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ereve. The average income tax rate is 42.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Arian economy, worth 206 trillion Lunes a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 111,669 Lunes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The "temporary replacement bus service" is now a permanent fixture, most households' childcare costs are higher than their mortgage payments, the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources, and colonial subjects have Arian culture shoved down their throats. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aria Heart's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Yunoism.

Aria Heart is ranked 77,955th in the world and 3,791st in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 1,775.37 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
