The Marvelous Duchy of Greater Arctic is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The Right Honorable Axel with an iron fist, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, compulsory vegetarianism, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 1.79 billion Greater Arcticians 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 enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ayylian. The average income tax rate is 95.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Greater Arctician economy, worth 291 trillion Asoes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 162,960 Asoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One does not simply walk into the tundra, snooze factory is now prison lingo for rehabilitation center, the nation grinds to a halt on the anniversary of every marginally noteworthy event, and children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Arctic's national animal is the Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Greater Arctic is ranked 4,373rd in the world and 99th in 10000 Islands for Best Weather, with 327 Meters Of Sunlight.
