The Artoonian Empire of Artoonia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Lia Plej Serena Imperiamajesteco Arĉjo I with a fair hand, and notable for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 35.46 billion Artoonians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Education, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Law & Order are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lumo. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Artoonian economy, worth an astonishing 15,703 trillion spesmiloj a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 442,840 spesmiloj, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

Weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, the army's use of chemical weapons leaves a bad taste in the mouth, a shipwreck is everyone's fault but the captain's, and history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, probably because of the absence of a police force. Artoonia's national animal is the penguin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is L'Eklezio Artunia.

Artoonia is ranked 209,171st in the world and 3rd in The Satellite of Love for Safest, scoring 1.37 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
