The Kingdom of Articune is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 250 million Articuneans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haku. The average income tax rate is 38.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Articunean economy, worth 19.6 trillion feathers a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,257 feathers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
Birth rates have hit an all-time low, Articune has designated Haku as its capital city, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, and military recruitment numbers are down as citizens object on 'moral grounds'. Crime is totally unknown. Articune's national animal is the crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
