The Republic of Artadal is a massive, safe nation, ruled by President Jaffari Issa with a fair hand, and notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.163 billion Artadalians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Atmaja. The average income tax rate is 73.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Artadalian economy, worth 224 trillion Artadal Gols a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,686 Artadal Gols, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

There's never a spare chair in the retirement home, hairdressers are among those who have disappeared overnight, the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, and skateparks can be found in every city. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Artadal's national animal is the Maroka dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Artadal is ranked 216,726th in the world and 316th in Anteria for Rudest Citizens, with 7.63 Insults Per Minute.
