The Empire of Artannia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Empress Maria Artannina III with an even hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.283 billion Artanns have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Artanna. The average income tax rate is 73.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Artannian economy, worth 439 trillion Dynnars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 102,605 Dynnars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Convicted felons are forced into slavery for their crimes, more sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people, fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit, and gossip magazines have pictures of Empress Maria Artannina III sunbathing on the beach with political rivals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Artannia's national animal is the Artannian Winged Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Artannian Orthodoxy.

Artannia is ranked 69,965th in the world and 125th in The Free Nations Region for Most Average, scoring 42.44 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
