The People's Republic of Aryax is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 244 million Aryaxians 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 79.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Aryaxian economy, worth 7.57 trillion units 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 Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 31,040 units, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Ministry of Truthiness now manages the entire media industry, government bureaucrats shut down teenage yard-raking businesses for being counter-revolutionary, troops are either deafened by gunfire or a hysterical voice screaming the Party manifesto, and the nation tends not to learn from its history. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aryax's national animal is the orca, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Aryax is ranked 156,067th in the world and 953rd in 10000 Islands for Highest Crime Rates, with 1.89 Crimes Per Hour.
