The Kingdom of Araste Gogristapland is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 314 million Araste Gogristaplandians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dusseldorf. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.8%.
The all-consuming Araste Gogristaplandian economy, worth 41.7 trillion gogs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 132,712 gogs, with the richest citizens earning 8.3 times as much as the poorest.
Assault rifles sized for 7-year-olds are a frighteningly popular export, citizens who don't follow a major religion are closely monitored for signs of self-harm, model railroad hobbyists have taken to muscling model shipbuilders off their "turf", and female smokers cut their hair and don suits to get into male-only clubs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Araste Gogristapland's national animal is the giraffe, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
