The United Socialist States of Aritika is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.205 billion Aritikans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Portland. The average income tax rate is 89.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aritikan economy, worth 342 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 106,880 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Billions of dollars are spent to take high-quality photos of the Otter Nebula, builders across Aritika are blocked up with orders for new public loos, arriving late for dinner is considered the height of selfishness, and giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls. Crime is totally unknown. Aritika's national animal is the otter, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Islam.

Aritika is ranked 20,108th in the world and 7th in The Federation of Anarchist Communes for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 97.5 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
