The Holy Empire of -4rt F4n is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its public floggings, compulsory vegetarianism, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-working, devout population of 1.226 billion -4rt F4nians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52.3%.

The very strong -4rt F4nian economy, worth 59.6 trillion snails a year, is led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 48,615 snails, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

-4rt F4n's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, and commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. -4rt F4n's national animal is the owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

-4rt F4n is ranked 43,857th in the world and 12th in Psychotic Dictatorships for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 5,116.75 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
