The Federation of Artsotska is a massive, genial nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working population of 4.01 billion Norrandanese have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beogradė. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 54.2%.
The frighteningly efficient Norrandanese economy, worth 545 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 135,943 Credits, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.
There's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, murder is sanctioned if the legal paperwork is filled out correctly, and the dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Artsotska's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
