The JoJo of Arpino is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Emperor Biritui with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, ubiquitous missile silos, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, devout population of 4.231 billion Arpinogon are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arp. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Arpino economy, worth 838 trillion Damats 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 Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 198,169 Damats, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A-SPAN features senators wrestling with ever-increasing production elements, nations across the world are quick to praise Emperor Biritui's good looks and intellectual prowess, the distracting décor lining the roads causes multiple pile-ups, and citizens can't decide whether to be proud or horrified by the country's colonial history. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arpino's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Various Spiritualisms.

Arpino is ranked 168,273rd in the world and 6,300th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -713.79 on the Hayek Index.
