The Superstate of Gloriosa Arstotzka is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Big Brother with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, avowedly heterosexual populace, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 2.547 billion Arstotzkans 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, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Industry, and Administration also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pаяаdizиа. The average income tax rate is 95.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Arstotzkan economy, worth 542 trillion Golds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 213,013 Golds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The military perceives nations hit by natural disasters as "easy pickings", bilingual Arstotzkans are viewed with suspicion, child labor has been outlawed, and the nation has nearly as many history museums as Arstotzkans. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Gloriosa Arstotzka's national animal is the Cow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cult of Personality.

Gloriosa Arstotzka is ranked 18,250th in the world and 20th in Flanelistan for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,489.42 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
