The Arstotzkan Democratic Republic

Population687 million

Animalred-tailed eagle

The People's Republic of The Arstotzkan Democratic Republic is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 687 million Arstotzkans are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.7%.

The very strong Arstotzkan economy, worth 52.9 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 76,995 credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 280,161 per year while the poor average 15,048, a ratio of 18.6 to 1.

The nation's soldiers are considered the best-dressed in Changuu, deceased politicians' MyFace profiles are unanimously pro-incumbent, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, and parking's carefree without parking car fees. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Arstotzkan Democratic Republic's national animal is the red-tailed eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Arstotzkan Democratic Republic is ranked 288,060th in the world and 89th in Changuu for Most Beautiful Environments, with 48.64 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
