The Old Republic of Arztotskiya is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Artyom Chiornyj with an even hand, and notable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.301 billion Arztotskiyans 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 Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of High Capital. The average income tax rate is 79.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arztotskiyan economy, worth a remarkable 1,013 trillion Old Crowns 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 large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. 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 191,279 Old Crowns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Billions of Old Crowns are spent to take high-quality photos of the Eagle Nebula, the nation's soldiers often believe they're in the Air Force, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", and Arztotskiyan novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Artyom Chiornyj. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arztotskiya's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Arztotskiya is ranked 188,370th in the world and 8,195th in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.66 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
