The Federal Stratocracy of Arstungry is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by the Federal Council with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 9.125 billion Arstungrians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arstmark. The average income tax rate is 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Arstungryian economy, worth a remarkable 1,818 trillion ARTS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 199,283 ARTS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary, film studios own the rights to actors' likenesses until the next millennium, every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, and the government is paving paradises to put up parking lots. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arstungry's national animal is the Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arstungry is ranked 22,899th in the world and 1,449th in The North Pacific for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 8.65 Bank.
