The Union of The Arstotzkan Socialist Republic is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Mikhail Orvinsky with an iron fist, and notable for its state-planned economy, public floggings, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.969 billion Arstotzkans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orvech Vonor. The average income tax rate is 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Arstotzkan economy, worth 182 trillion Arstotzkan Credits 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 Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Information Technology. Average income is 92,717 Arstotzkan Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Anyone who sneezes at border crossings is turned away, scientists are researching the best way to kill off humanity to prevent catastrophic war, politicians accost strangers in the street to ask their problems, and an eye for an eye leaves The Arstotzkan Socialist Republic blind. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Arstotzkan Socialist Republic's national animal is the Arstotzkan eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Arstotzkan Socialist Republic is ranked 69,939th in the world and 3,441st in Balder for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 2,730.24 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
