The People's Republic of Aryax is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Stanislav Tyrankov with an iron fist, and notable for its punitive income tax rates, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful population of 1.707 billion Aryaxians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arkanoviverna. The average income tax rate is 96.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Aryaxian economy, worth 268 trillion units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 157,300 units, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Both diets and economic output are growing leaner with recent restrictions to free trade, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Aryax, telling someone to 'break a leg' is considered a criminal inducement to self harm, and power to the people comes from the barrel of a gun. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aryax's national animal is the orca, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Aryax is ranked 5,318th in the world and 44th in 10000 Islands for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 12,931.32 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
