The Military State of Aristales is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Benjamin Lavezzo with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, avant-garde cinema, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 1.274 billion Aristalesians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Calimara. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Aristalesian economy, worth 92.2 trillion Unitis a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 72,360 Unitis, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The banshee wail foretells skies of death, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, and Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aristales's national animal is the Osprey, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Hylianism.

Aristales is ranked 146,483rd in the world and 24th in The Land of Yoob for Most Armed, with 0.19 Weapons Per Person.
