The United Artherian Federation

Population6.138 billion

LeaderKaiser Andrew Barnes


The Reich der Artherien of The United Artherian Federation is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Kaiser Andrew Barnes with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.138 billion Artherians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Neuberlin. The average income tax rate is 96.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Artherian economy, worth a remarkable 2,283 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 372,038 Creds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Exam halls are littered with used needles and empty pill bottles, main battle tanks stalk the woods of The United Artherian Federation in search of Wolves, several citizens have complained about scientists abducting their pets for experimentation, and high-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 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 91,765th in the world and 14th in United Forum of Nations for Most Stationary, with 74.335369092 Days.
