The Dictatorship of Arzackstan is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, frequent executions, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 748 million Arzackstanians 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 Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Goverment Facility No1. The average income tax rate is 67.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Arzackstanian economy, worth 27.6 trillion Puqs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 36,922 Puqs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Golden statues of Snakes line the memorial avenues of the Funerary District, most academic research has ground to a halt, the nation's faithful often say there is a higher power watching over them, and conscientious objectors are hanged as traitors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arzackstan's national animal is the Snake.

Arzackstan is ranked 258,589th in the world and 11,628th in The North Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 1.21 quips per hour.
