The Crown Domain of Artite is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by King Elias Nurgud with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 12.686 billion Artitians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neo Rofinta. The average income tax rate is 89.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Artitean economy, worth a remarkable 1,955 trillion Imperial Credits a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 154,137 Imperial Credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Soldiers' positions are given away by the glint of their bayonets, citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, the nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear", and the nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Artite's national animal is the Red Tail Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Artitian Neo-Pagan.

Artite is ranked 10,605th in the world and 20th in Confederacy of Allied States for Most Developed, scoring 89.87 on the Human Development Index.
