|Leader||The Happy Man|
The Free and Happy Republic of Artemizistan is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Happy Man with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, parental licensing program, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 2.653 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 enormous, 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 96.4%.
The frighteningly efficient Artemizistani economy, worth 456 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 slick, highly efficient black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. 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 impressive 172,115 artems, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
In distant lands the nation is known as a lovely place that was even better in the good old days, intellectual snobbery has the cognoscenti sneering at anyone who doesn't have an opinion on the semiological drift of Umberto Eco's works, babies are a small but significant export, and the nation's leader is normally just referred to as "snuggle-wuggle-huggy-bear". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Artemizistan's national animal is the platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
