The Arstotzka Union of Of Emptiness is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Inspector with an iron fist, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.472 billion entrants are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Airstrip One. The average income tax rate is 61.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Arstotzka economy, worth 184 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 125,279 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.
The Department of Health is snowed under by requests for crisper ciabatta and tenderer tagliatelle, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, and more and more people are signing up for the government party. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Of Emptiness's national animal is the book, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Dystopianism.
