The Artherianisches Reich of The United Artherian Federation is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Kaiser Otto Gottschalk with an even hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, pith helmet sales, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 8.069 billion Artherians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berlin. The average income tax rate is 97.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Artherian economy, worth a remarkable 3,143 trillion Creds a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an amazing 389,536 Creds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, Kaiser Otto Gottschalk's personal home is one of United Forum of Nations's most notorious party destinations, bored politicians often entertain themselves with games of Simon during important votes, and business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 541st in the world and 1st in United Forum of Nations for Largest Black Market, with 5,006 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
