|Leader||President Joseph Schmoe|
The Democratic Republic of Areast is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Joseph Schmoe with an even hand, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, ubiquitous missile silos, and smutty television. The compassionate, cheerful population of 5.464 billion Areasteans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Areastopolis. The average income tax rate is 94.5%.
The frighteningly efficient Areastean economy, worth 850 trillion arets a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 155,597 arets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning, burial ceremonies have become as routinised as tax forms, class action lawsuits have gone up in smoke thanks to government interference, and hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Areast's national animal is the Bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
