The Cold chemical island state of Artic ring is a massive, genial nation, ruled by ARC alpha 1 with an even hand, and remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. Its compassionate, hard-working population of 4.467 billion 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 77%, 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.
Waste is frequently shipped to other countries, the tenet of free speech is held dear, those found guilty of illicit affairs are jailed, and leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks. 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.
