The Empire of Arson pog is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 694 million Arson pogians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of ARSOOOOOOOOOON. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Arson pogian economy, worth 24.4 trillion “Freedom” coins 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Pizza Delivery. 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 35,165 “Freedom” coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government enforces a policy of 'from each according to their ability, to each according to the available budget', the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, and the Arson pogian Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arson pog's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
