Regional Influence: Minnow

Location: Greece


The Dominion of Artaphernes is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 10.495 billion Artaphernesians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defence, the Environment, and Social Welfare. The average income tax rate is 18%. A healthy private sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, followed by Arms Manufacturing and Furniture Restoration.

Crime is moderate. Artaphernes's national animal is the farnah, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the sparda.

Artaphernes is ranked 11th in Greece and 19,823rd in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -3 on the Hayek Index.
