The Wasteland Fortress of Artyolae is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Artonov Yolaeski with an even hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 1.231 billion Artyolaeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Fortress-City of Artyola. The average income tax rate is 44.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Artyolaean economy, worth 105 trillion Denars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 85,888 Denars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters, and a video of Artonov Yolaeski wearing shock-blue face paint and smashing an electric guitar in front of a frenzied crowd is on endless repeat on the nightly news. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Artyolae's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Pantheon of the Old Ones.

Artyolae is ranked 50,435th in the world and 636th in 10000 Islands for Most Beautiful Environments, with 661.8 Pounds Of Wildlife Per Square Mile.
