The Republic of Arstron is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, smutty television, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 732 million Arstronians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arstra. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Arstronian economy, worth 91.8 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 125,380 Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, the government helps teach children how to kill a man from six paces, the 'three Rs' have become the 'four Rs' with the addition of Rightful Thought, and sushi just hasn't been the same since salmon went extinct overnight. Crime is totally unknown. Arstron's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Arstron is ranked 16,895th in the world and 500th in The East Pacific for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 6,570.99 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
