Arpet is a state of Aenderia. The state joined Aenderia on March 11 2019. Prior to this Arpet had been a sovereign republic along with New Hanoi, which is now an Aenderian SAR.

Etymology

The name Arpet has no translation in any language - It has no meaning. The creator of the name, William Efton, has stated in the past that this word was simply a mashup of the phrase "Our pet."

The name is made up and doesn't mean anything.

History

The state was founded by William Efton as a way to add land to Aenderia. The land is situated in Central Texas, near the town of Burnet and the Buchanan Dam. Arpet began as a predominant producer of Aenderia's agriculture, however, a fire that broke out in the state destroyed arable land. The state also began hosting the majority of the country's Vietnamese population.

Climate and Geography

Geography

Arpet is surrounded by hills to its west and flatlands to its right, being in the middle of a unique geographic area of the United States and being at the intersection of the Edwards Plateau. Arpet has the country's highest elevation point at 1,322' (403 m) above sea level. The geography of the state gives it a natural advantage, with mountains protecting land from snowstorms raging on the west in winter albeit still leaving the area unprotected against snow from the north, and the flatlands allowing maximum sunlight to be harnessed during summer.

Climate

Arpet's official classification in the Koppen Climate Classification is a Warm Humid Subtropical Climate. It is sometimes blisteringly hot temperatures in summer while also receiving a fair share of winter storms. There have been years where winter weather was not reported at all, although this is extraordinarily rare as most years will have an amount of ice, sleet, and snow. High temperatures in summer exceed well over 100 degrees F (38 degrees C) for weeks at a time. Once in every two years or so, the temperature will drop below 10 degrees F (-12 degrees C).

Government

The unicameral legislature of the State of Arpet is the State House of Representatives, with two members, the Executive of the State and the Vice Executive of the State. The government of Arpet does not use the prefix "Right Honorable" for the names of its senior government members, in contrast to the federal government. Sessions of the House of Representatives happen on an informal basis due to the lack of a large constituency in the state and topics discussed are rather menial.

The current administration of government is best defined as being politically moderate, taking a liberal stance on social issues while trending more conservative on issues related to the economy. The Centrist Party of Aenderia, one of the two current ruling parties of Aenderia, is headquartered in Arpet and the Executive and Vice Executive are both members of the Party.

The Government gives most regular functions of a government (for example, voting and the justice system) to the one at the federal level, therefore allowing it to focus on more local issues that are unique to the state itself.
