The Federal Stratocracy of Arstungry is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by the Federal Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 5.843 billion Arstungrians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arstmark. The average income tax rate is 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arstungryian economy, worth a remarkable 1,200 trillion ARTS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 205,513 ARTS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary, film studios own the rights to actors' likenesses until the next millennium, every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, and the government is paving paradises to put up parking lots. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arstungry's national animal is the Snake, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Arstungry is ranked 3,934th in the world and 231st in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.01 Years.
