The Glorious Republic of TrueArstotzka is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Shahriyar with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, infamous sell-swords, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 4.672 billion Arstotzkans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Administration, and Law & Order are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orvech Vonor. The average income tax rate is 96.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Arstotzkan economy, worth 802 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 171,705 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

You can get married in sickness and in health but not internationally, Thomas the Spank Engine is the most popular and controversial children's show in the nation, Arstotzkan Standard Vodka is the only drink that bars stock, and the nation doesn't need to go to war in order to acquire new territory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. TrueArstotzka's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

TrueArstotzka is ranked 202,154th in the world and 975th in The Communist Bloc for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.59 Crimes Per Hour.
