Currencypeople's republic drachma

The People's Republic of Artemis is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by General Secretary Amaltheia Kouris with an even hand, and renowned for its closed borders, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 6.08 billion Artemisians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Elpida. The average income tax rate is 86.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Artemisian economy, worth 648 trillion people's republic drachmas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 106,698 people's republic drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, arbitration is mightier than the sword, children are often punished for the sins of the fathers, and fixing attendance at women's matches is a matter of "when they go low, we go high... funding". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Artemis's national animal is the stag, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is State Atheism.

Artemis is ranked 204,288th in the world and 303rd in Forest for Most Armed, with 0.18 Weapons Per Person.
