The Republic of Arhtopea is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 279 million Arhtopeans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.4%.

The thriving Arhtopean economy, worth 20.7 trillion Arhtopean Cashes a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 74,258 Arhtopean Cashes, with the richest citizens earning 8.2 times as much as the poorest.

Political detractors refer to Leader as 'that Bigtopian puppet', industry tycoons rarely hide their misdeeds due to the government's habit of bailing them out, funeral mourners ridesharing with the deceased are encouraged to sit on the coffin to save room, and literally voiceless people are unable to protest when food and water are denied to them. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Arhtopea's national animal is the Tiger, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Arhtopea is ranked 7,681st in the world and 4th in The Social Liberal Union for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 6,229.97 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
