The Glorious Land of Aristortia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by El Presidente with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 5.259 billion Aristortians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haven. The average income tax rate is 79.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aristortian economy, worth 866 trillion Septims a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 164,843 Septims, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake, a newly discovered small mammal's name translates into Aristortian as 'your finger, you fool', prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, and social media sites go into shutdown for days at a time to censor user content. Crime is totally unknown. Aristortia's national animal is the Dolphin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Aristortia is ranked 158,591st in the world and 6,038th in The East Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -152.17 on the Hayek Index.
