The Federal Stratocracy of Arstungry is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Federal Council with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, otherworldly petting zoo, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 5.266 billion Arstungrians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arstmark. The average income tax rate is 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arstungryian economy, worth a remarkable 1,084 trillion ARTS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 205,856 ARTS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Government officials have to mortgage their homes to make ends meet, exceptionally healthy police officers can sprint after crooks for hours on end, cane fights are a common sight in nursing homes, and the Party has more splits than a yo-yo dieter's trousers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arstungry's national animal is the Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arstungry is ranked 136,148th in the world and 7,553rd in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 91.23 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
