The Fabricated Reality of Arestorkopia

Regional Influence: Shoeshiner

Location: The North Pacific



Population1.1 billion



The Fabricated Reality of Arestorkopia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Facillitor with a fair hand, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, free-roaming dinosaurs, and smutty television. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.1 billion Arestorkopians 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 enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Comfytown. The average income tax rate is 73.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arestorkopian economy, worth 98.1 trillion pipecleaners a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 89,138 pipecleaners, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Teenage TV characters are played by thirty-year-olds by the end of the second season, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, many whiskies taste suspiciously like automobile radiators, and Facillitor's webseries about the alleged hauntings of Comfytown generates millions of views. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arestorkopia's national animal is the woozle, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arestorkopia is ranked 6,058th in the world and 334th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.92 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
