OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Dominion of Artaphernes is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 10.783 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 the Environment, Defence, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 18%. A large 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 27th in Greece and 93,503rd in the world for Highest Average Tax Rates, scoring 3 on the Inverse Hayek Index.
