The Twin-Emirate of Ares-y-Penthesilea is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its strong anti-business policies. The hard-nosed population of 5.815 billion Academians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass -- juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Defence, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 41%, but much higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Soda Sales.

Voting is compulsory, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and military spending is on the increase. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ares-y-Penthesilea's national animal is the Minotaur, and its currency is the Hephaestus.

Ares-y-Penthesilea is ranked 70th in Esportiva and 69,658th in the world for Smartest Citizens, scoring 22 on the Average Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
