The People's Republic of Arsa is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Supreme Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, anti-smoking policies, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 770 million Arsans 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, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arkton. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Arsan economy, worth 90.2 trillion Arks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 117,182 Arks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children spend all morning taking out a comma and all afternoon putting it back in again, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Arsa, political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, and hammer and sickle-wielding space marines are such stuff that dreams are made on. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arsa's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Arsa is ranked 6,067th in the world and 135th in The Communist Bloc for Most Secular, with 97.72 Atheism Rate.
