|Animal||Arstanelian Peregrine Falcon|
The Kingdom of Arstanel is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its pith helmet sales, avant-garde cinema, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 545 million Arstanelians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neu Fallendresch. The average income tax rate is 33.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The strong Arstanelian economy, worth 38.7 trillion Cendaros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 70,957 Cendaros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
It is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven, ratings for sitcom reruns are often much higher than election debates, graffiti graces every city's streets, and insanely good theatre productions face government censorship. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arstanel's national animal is the Arstanelian Peregrine Falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
