The Glorious Patch of Sun of Artemisiana is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its parental licensing program, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.919 billion Artemisianans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 77.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Artemisianan economy, worth 107 trillion Pawprints a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 56,097 Pawprints, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Planes can be grounded for months simply because an inspector "didn't like the color", genocide is seen as a topic best avoided in history lessons, tax revenue is often intercepted by international accountants before ever seeing the national treasury, and business owners return from long vacations to find their factories have been turned into homeless shelters. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Artemisiana's national animal is the Housecat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Artemisiana is ranked 486th in the world and 353rd in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 222 Valid Endorsements.
