The Empire of Ahartsburg is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Supreme Leader Ahart with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, smutty television, and compulsory military service. The compassionate population of 7.982 billion Ahartsburgians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thardan. The average income tax rate is 85.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ahartsburgian economy, worth 835 trillion Belles a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 104,717 Belles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The state considers itself the 'third parent' of every child in the nation, hospitals are amongst the best-funded in the region, engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", and old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ahartsburg's national animal is the Red Tail Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Ahartism.

Ahartsburg is ranked 222,723rd in the world and 191st in 21st Century Rome for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 44.98 Workforce Participation Rate.
