The People's Confederation of Arsa is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Supreme Premier with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, prohibition of alcohol, and compulsory vegetarianism. The cynical population of 3.185 billion Arsans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arkton. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Arsan economy, worth 619 trillion Arks 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 significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 194,605 Arks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Supreme Premier's used car is held together by bumper stickers that support the opposition, the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts, light entertainment shows are light on actual entertainment, and self-driving cars are unpopular due to suspicion that they murder their passengers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arsa's national animal is the Steppe Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Arsa is ranked 1,391st in the world and 12th in The Communist Bloc for Most Patriotic, with 84.02 flags saluted per person per day.
