The People's Republic of Aryax is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Stanislav Tyrankov with an iron fist, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful population of 1.944 billion Aryaxians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arkanoviverna. The average income tax rate is 97.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Aryaxian economy, worth 328 trillion units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 169,209 units, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

High-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD, people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy, the native owl population is in permanent hibernation, and sneezing pedestrians are grabbed by alley-lurking doctors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aryax's national animal is the orca, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Aryax is ranked 216,183rd in the world and 1,425th in 10000 Islands for Rudest Citizens, with 8.93 Insults Per Minute.
