The Socialist Federation of Arthralonia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Head Chancellor Karl Stefansson with an even hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, pith helmet sales, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed population of 2.237 billion Arthralonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tabriki. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Arthralonian economy, worth 442 trillion Federal Credits 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 Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 198,014 Federal Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Contestants on Arthralonia's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, child labor has been outlawed, and there's a bright dawn ahead for Arthralonia. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arthralonia's national animal is the Arthralonian Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Arthralonia is ranked 199,414th in the world and 5,430th in the Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 75.04 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
