The Major Military Empire of The United Artherian Federation is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by King-Emperor Andrew Himeler with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, keen interest in outer space, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.639 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 New Chicago. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Artherian economy, worth a remarkable 1,115 trillion Creds a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 306,609 Creds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Artherians seem to be catching more chills, foreign militias and child smuggling rings will always love King-Emperor Andrew Himeler, the government is often referred to as "the biggest drug dealer in the nation", and children as young as eight can present logical proofs for the existence of the afterlife. 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 16,353rd in the world and 6th in United Nations of Earthlings for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,802.56 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
