The People's Republic of Aryax is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Stanislav Tyrankov with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful population of 1.54 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arkanoviverna. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Aryaxian economy, worth 226 trillion units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 147,026 units, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Literally voiceless people are unable to protest when food and water are denied to them, the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs, police officers have nearly cracked a major underage astronomy syndicate, and bargain-hunting is considered unpatriotic. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aryax's national animal is the orca, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Aryax is ranked 65,504th in the world and 760th in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 3,073.7 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
