The Democratic States of Artonin is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by President Alice Doma with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 5.577 billion Artoniains enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Losrion. The average income tax rate is 72.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Artoninian economy, worth 746 trillion Solons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 133,811 Solons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust, traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers, old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, and 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Artonin's national animal is the Black Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Artonin is ranked 23,279th in the world and 270th in Europe for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 8.36 Bank.
