The Republic of Arstotzkans is a tiny, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 9 million Arstotzkansians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 23.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The fair Arstotzkansian economy, worth 410 billion Arstotzkan coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 45,565 Arstotzkan coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Midnight raids drag couples from their homes in the name of decency, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, third world countries are rich in "I Love Arstotzkans City" t-shirts, and pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arstotzkans's national animal is the pigeon.

Arstotzkans is ranked 142,839th in the world and 2nd in The Alliance Of The Communists for Most Armed, with 0.31 weapons per person.
