The Free Land of Arztroska is a gargantuan, genial nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, hatred of cheese, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 10.901 billion Arztroskans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rainbowland. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Arztroskan economy, worth a remarkable 2,841 trillion Yuri Magazines a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 260,684 Yuri Magazines, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A PhD just ain't what it used to be, hordes of tourists are ruining the environment, visitors often mistake the toiletplex at music festivals for the main stage, and edutainment video games are taking Arztroska's students to the next level. Crime is totally unknown. Arztroska's national animal is the Nine-tailed Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Anime.

Arztroska is ranked 257,703rd in the world and 1st in Gooseland for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -37.4 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
