The Holy Empire of Aritzoska is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 778 million Zanosi love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lonolia. The average income tax rate is 77.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Zanos economy, worth 71.0 trillion Digital Aritzoks 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 91,321 Digital Aritzoks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, the once prosperous capital is in utter decline, the parliament building has installed a revolving door, and cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aritzoska's national animal is the Neanderthal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aritzoska is ranked 37,537th in the world and 1,966th in the South Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.92 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
