The Cold chemical island state of Artic ring is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by ARC alpha 1 with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service. The compassionate population of 5.288 billion 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 Law & Order, the Environment, 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.
The nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, dozens of additional foreign policy specialists have been sent to the country's WA Mission, gambling is outlawed, and prisons are crowded with possible terrorist suspects. 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.
