The Gravonist State of Arrstotzka is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Hallita Rubert Mannerhoff with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.887 billion Arrstotzkans are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry, Spirituality, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paradizno. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 33.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Arrstotzkan economy, worth a remarkable 1,291 trillion markkaa a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 219,311 markkaa, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,068,346 per year while the poor average 25,944, a ratio of 41.2 to 1.

Childhood friends of Hallita Rubert Mannerhoff are living it large abroad at the taxpayers' expense, advert breaks are played at lower volumes to make them easier to ignore, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, and whenever pilots have to bail out the government bails out their company. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Arrstotzka's national animal is the Brown Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Lutheran Protestantism.

Arrstotzka is ranked 114,083rd in the world and 17th in Pax Britannia for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 32.73 on the Hayek Index.
