The United Socialist States of Armatha is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 423 million Armathans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Armathan economy, worth 18.6 trillion florins 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 led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 43,858 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Those found guilty of illicit affairs are jailed, citizens are deployed to barren deserts to protect small territorial claims, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, and the army lures cannon fodder with promises of a college education. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Armatha's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Armatha is ranked 204,611th in the world and 1,593rd in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -11.22 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
