Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Cold chemical island state of Artic ring is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by ARC alpha 1 with an even hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The compassionate, devout population of 10.66 billion Artic ringians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Environment, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of coolandria. The average income tax rate is 94.1%.

The strong Artic ringian economy, worth 817 trillion sands a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 76,694 sands, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nightly news reports prosaically on the government blindly throwing money at despotic kidnappers, toilet paper is considered a non-essential item in the embargo against Brasilistan, the government is spending more on exports to Brasilistan than it's receiving from tariffs on the imports, and soldiers are now trained how to make sandwiches properly. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Artic ring's national animal is the dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Artic ring is ranked 60,825th in the world and 1,822nd in Balder for Most Average, scoring 40.07 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
