The Socialist Federation of Arthralonia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Head Chancellor Karl Stefansson with an even hand, and renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, vat-grown people, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 2.247 billion Arthralonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tabriki. The average income tax rate is 80.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arthralonian economy, worth 444 trillion Federal Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 197,710 Federal Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, shivering secretaries type letters under torrential downpours in open-roof offices, signs at the border tell international drivers where they can put their cars, and the nation's politicians are known more for the internet memes they spawn than any of their accomplishments. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arthralonia's national animal is the Arthralonian Falcon.

Arthralonia is ranked 228,344th in the world and 5,916th in the Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -643.84 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
