Population4.232 billion

LeaderQueen Alexandra I


The Kingdom of Artemis is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Queen Alexandra I with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 4.232 billion Artemisians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elpida. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Artemisian economy, worth 485 trillion drachmas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 114,721 drachmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government prefers to kill off its enemies by peaceful means, carefully-staged grief is displayed by Queen Alexandra I after national disasters, cowboys often wear wolfskin jackets to the saloon, and police are trained in using their steel-capped boots as a tool of law enforcement. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a 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 Hellenism.

Artemis is ranked 194,044th in the world and 363rd in Forest for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.82 Crimes Per Hour.
