The Commonwealth of Arracrania is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Marisa Ortega-Urbina with a fair hand, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, complete lack of prisons, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 773 million Arrecije live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The relatively small, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Industry, although Education, Defense, and Administration are also considered important, while Law & Order and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tavirtad. The average income tax rate is 19.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Arrecije economy, worth 125 trillion iasetas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 162,414 iasetas, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

There'll be no comeback tour for many former boy bands, pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, tea and biscuits have replaced waterboarding and sleep deprivation as the primary tools of interrogation, and foreign powers often deal with problems that Arracrania can't handle. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Arracrania's national animal is the Sailor-Mouthed Parakeet, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Arracrania is ranked 199,079th in the world and 5,596th in the West Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -419.59 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
