The United Artherian Federation

Population1.644 billion

LeaderPresident David Kolkman


The Imperial Military Republic of The United Artherian Federation is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President David Kolkman with an even hand, and renowned for its strictly enforced bedtime, ubiquitous missile silos, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 1.644 billion Artherians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Chicago. The average income tax rate is 88.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Artherian economy, worth 312 trillion Creds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 190,009 Creds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Passionate nomination battles are often as intense as general elections, busy commuters no longer hear the cries of "I want some more!" on the nation's streets, the nation's train stations are widely considered to be the ugliest in United Nations of Earthlings, and sneezing pedestrians are grabbed by alley-lurking doctors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The United Artherian Federation's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

The United Artherian Federation is ranked 17,653rd in the world and 15th in United Nations of Earthlings for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,754.71 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
