Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of ArcticOne is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 584 million AOians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The relatively small, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of North Point. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16.5%.

The all-consuming Arctic economy, worth 76.9 trillion Merits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 131,730 Merits, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government has begun selling heroin and ecstasy to help fund its projects, the ArcticOne Enquirer offers weekly cash prizes for 'most blasphemous song, story, or cartoon', people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. ArcticOne's national animal is the Ossifrage, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

ArcticOne is ranked 21,647th in the world and 43rd in Renegade Islands Alliance for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 286,749.31 Standard Monetary Units.
