The Most Serene Republic of Artsalanda is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, devout population of 464 million Artsalandans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 67.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Artsalandan economy, worth 24.4 trillion Poonaans a year, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 52,547 Poonaans, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Excited shovel-bearing geeks wander the countryside, classes are regularly interrupted by drunken children, the nation doesn't need to go to war in order to acquire new territory, and genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Artsalanda's national animal is the crocodile, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Artsalanda is ranked 72,293rd in the world and 149th in The Union of Democratic States for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 2,930.79 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
