The Empire of Stella-Arga is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, complete lack of prisons, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.512 billion Argans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arga-Prime. The average income tax rate is 39.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Argan economy, worth 181 trillion strachums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 120,110 strachums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Government officials across Stella-Arga are being "encouraged" to adopt Argan Wolves to set an example for the populace, a weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order, Leader has been known to threaten dissenting citizens with a machine gun at press conferences, and children are terrified that the 'flying police monster' will come to take them away in the night. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stella-Arga's national animal is the Argan Wolf, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Stella-Arga is ranked 2,934th in the world and 455th in the South Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 80 valid endorsements.
