The Cold chemical island state of Artic ring is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by ARC alpha 1 with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate population of 5.866 billion, 2.428 billion of whom are zombies, Artic ringians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Law & Order, and Defence. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of coolandria. The average income tax rate is 81%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Voters must frequently select what they view as the lesser of two evils on the ballot, the government is promoting multicultural values with the new 'Just Be Nice, OK?' initiative, citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, and motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Artic ring's national animal is the dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the sand.

Artic ring is ranked 166th in New Coalition of Nations and 104,727th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -9 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.

Artic ring is currently considering its options.
