The Socialist Federal Republic of Artoriticitys is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Müller Thermolev with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 863 million Artoreans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fürthreich. The average income tax rate is 41.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Artoreanz economy, worth 115 trillion molens a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 133,911 molens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Disposable antiseptic wipes are considered a social necessity, the entire entry for Artoriticitys in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', cash-strapped junkies lick rabbits for a cheap high, and Müller Thermolev has just been declared ruler of Artoriticitys in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Artoriticitys's national animal is the Artorian tigers, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Artoriticitys is ranked 279th in the world and 208th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 349 valid endorsements.
