The Free and Happy Republic of Artemizistan is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Happy Man with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, unlimited-speed roads, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 2.994 billion Artemizistanis are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Artemis City. The average income tax rate is 96.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Artemizistani economy, worth 601 trillion artems a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 200,999 artems, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Self-driving cars are unpopular due to suspicion that they murder their passengers, art criticism in Artemizistan is scathingly destructive, cigarettes are dead-cheap, and there's never a spare chair in the retirement home. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Artemizistan's national animal is the platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Artemizistan is ranked 2,765th in the world and 136th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 8,238.99 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
