The Queendom of Armans is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Queen Skitty with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, public floggings, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.619 billion Victims are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Corruptown. The average income tax rate is 85.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Victimized economy, worth 358 trillion tears a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 136,970 tears, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Healthcare workers are flummoxed over the spike in foreign tourists with sudden-onset heart disease, international terrorists often get their weapons supply in Armans, preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime, and the Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Armans's national animal is the self-aware nuclear bomb, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is The Cat Overlords.

Armans is ranked 169,285th in the world and 5th in Dolla Holla for Most Pro-Market, scoring -63.33 on the Rand Index.
