The State of Hidden the Artic is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by General Zelgius with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, avowedly heterosexual populace, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 3.128 billion Hidden Articians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hidden City. The average income tax rate is 69.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Hidden the Artician economy, worth 428 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 137,006 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past, the "boy who cried wolf" policy makes sick people reluctant to call an ambulance, General Zelgius has been known to make speeches in fishing waders, and immersive video game experiences are interrupted by incessant disclaimer pop-ups. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hidden the Artic's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is The Owl.

Hidden the Artic is ranked 14,341st in the world and 28th in New Western Empire for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 4,988.28 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
