The Democratic People's Republic of Artevenia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Marco V with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and triple-decker prams. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.738 billion Artevenians 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, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Darcania. The average income tax rate is 63.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Artevenian economy, worth 996 trillion lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 147,867 lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A burger chain recently changed its name to Mack Donaldz for legal reasons, students abandon classrooms for online education, preschoolers practice disarming active shooters before naptime, and rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Artevenia's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Artevenia is ranked 185,148th in the world and 235th in Lands End for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.81 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
