The Republic of Arstron is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.279 billion Arstronians 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 tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arstra. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Arstronian economy, worth 171 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 134,470 Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 508,254 per year while the poor average 24,753, a ratio of 20.5 to 1.

The bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Arstra, auditors are gutting every governmental department, cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates, and the government's economic policy is "sort it yourself". Crime is relatively low. Arstron's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Arstron is ranked 34,230th in the world and 1,085th in The East Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 83.08 Years.
