The People's Republic of Aryax is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Stanislav Tyrankov with an iron fist, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, strictly enforced bedtime, and keen interest in outer space. The cynical, cheerful population of 5.844 billion Aryaxians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arkanoviverna. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Aryaxian economy, worth a remarkable 1,680 trillion units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 287,524 units, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens have reported seeing strange rays of light emanating from the moon, Aryax is increasingly belligerent on the international stage, the police use sound cannons and mortars to deal with loud parties, and in court almost every witness is a hostile witness. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aryax's national animal is the orca, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Aryax is ranked 1,844th in the world and 34th in 10000 Islands for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 10,035.15 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
