The Unspeakably Zen Republic of Aroa is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by The Flying Ninja with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, digital currency, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.925 billion Aroans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mountain Dojo. The average income tax rate is 39.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aroan economy, worth a remarkable 1,578 trillion anoes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 105,747 anoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, military officers are given medals for disobeying orders, more than one company makes the board game Monopoly, and the 'sing-a-long with The Flying Ninja' album is a popular souvenir. Crime is totally unknown. Aroa's national animal is the Afroed Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aroa is ranked 9,530th in the world and 548th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 86.84 on the Human Development Index.
