The Major Empire of The United Artherian Federation is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King-Emperor Himeler with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, smutty television, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.344 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Chicago. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 93.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Artherian economy, worth 587 trillion Creds a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 250,617 Creds, with the richest citizens earning 8.3 times as much as the poorest.

Exploding toys that leak battery acid are back in the shops after the government declared child safety 'over-rated', the bum of King-Emperor Himeler has been voted the most recognisable in The United Artherian Federation, job opportunities abound in the Hole Recycling industry, and children as young as eight can be found working in factories. 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 Artherian Christianity.

The United Artherian Federation is ranked 35,866th in the world and 12th in United Nations of Earthlings for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,835.95 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
