The Federal Stratocracy of Arstungry is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by the Federal Council with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, digital currency, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 12.094 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 large, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arstmark. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Arstungryian economy, worth a remarkable 2,410 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 impressive 199,343 ARTS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

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 well-funded 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 195,153rd in the world and 8,699th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 91.66 percentage of bribes refused.
