The Archipelagic Union of Artolba is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mirano Sovakha with an even hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 932 million Artolbans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ahmalka. The average income tax rate is 34.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Artolban economy, worth 51.4 trillion keskobs a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 55,142 keskobs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia, Mirano Sovakha has taken to wearing medal-adorned military uniform in all public appearances, the slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework, and rural Artolbans stare in awe at the bright lights of the big cities. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Artolba's national animal is the fish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Artolba is ranked 77,984th in the world and 7th in Coalition for Collective Cooperation for Most Developed, scoring 58.9 on the Human Development Index.
