The Confederation of The Aristocratic States is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Arick Cat with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed population of 1.614 billion Aristocrats are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aristograd. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Aristocratic economy, worth 148 trillion Hivers a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. Average income is 91,863 Hivers, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Old folks reminisce about the last time someone was acquitted of a crime, autumn landscape paintings feature men stripping leaves from bare branches with a vacuum, residential tower blocks are surrounded by warrens of concrete tunnels, and the nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Aristocratic States's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
