The Borderlands of Aratian Olsa is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, pith helmet sales, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 820 million Aratian Olsans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.2%.

The thriving Aratian Olsan economy, worth 64.5 trillion Tipoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 78,716 Tipoes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 280,611 per year while the poor average 15,882, a ratio of 17.7 to 1.

Leader has been self-declared as the Most Supreme Magnificent Overlord of Everything You Ever Saw, the contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Aratian Olsa, citizens must pay to enjoy Aratian Olsa's pristine beaches, and it's said that an Aratian Olsan always pays his debts with significant compounding. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force. Aratian Olsa's national animal is the Leopard, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Aratian Olsa is ranked 5,476th in the world and 1st in The United Nations of Relative Logic for Fattest Citizens, with 22.43 Obesity Rate.
