The Illusory Spectre of Arrivederci is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by General Gorlomi with a fair hand, and notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 12.48 billion Arrivedercians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Welfare and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Margheriti. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Arrivedercian economy, worth a remarkable 4,749 trillion Gold Coins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 380,553 Gold Coins, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

'Mountain Doobie' is widely regarded as the nation's favourite drink, nighttime sightings of raccoons sporting Circle-A patches and bandanna masks are on the rise, young children are learning advanced physics to scientifically disprove the existence of Santa Claus, and employers are finding it hard to screen candidates now that everyone gets A grades in their exams. Crime is totally unknown. Arrivederci's national animal is the Vampire Narwhal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Christianity.

Arrivederci is ranked 204,956th in the world and 9,204th in The North Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with -1.76 Effective Tax Rate.
