The Federal Proletarian State of The Arstotzkan Socialist Republic is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Mikhail Orvinsky with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, ban on automobiles, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed population of 1.256 billion Arstotzkans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orvech Vonor. The average income tax rate is 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Arstotzkan economy, worth 110 trillion Arstotzkan Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 88,201 Arstotzkan Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political candidates are regularly blocked for minor convictions from their teenage years, referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, the "swords to plowshares" policy has created a generation of farmers that can kill a yak from 200 yards away, and it is popularly believed that "cheese every day keeps disaster away". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Arstotzkan Socialist Republic's national animal is the Arstotzkan eagle.

The Arstotzkan Socialist Republic is ranked 15,067th in the world and 716th in the South Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 76.27 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
