The Democratic States of Arthenius is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, compulsory vegetarianism, and keen interest in outer space. The cynical population of 1.038 billion Arthenians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 39.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Arthenian economy, worth 44.9 trillion florins a year, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 43,223 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

The pursuit of wanted criminals ends at the entrance of the pay'n'spray garage as police refuse to enter any private property, the police go to great efforts to seize contraband favored by politicians on the police oversight committee, the realistic depiction of tentacles is on the core syllabus of most art schools, and billions of florins are being poured into a space program. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arthenius's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arthenius is ranked 115,720th in the world and 4,131st in Balder for Most Armed, with 0.26 Weapons Per Person.
