The Republic of Artol is a huge, pleasant nation, notable for its burgeoning hhhhhhhhhh population. The hard-working population of 624 million Artolians 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 Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 21.2%.
The Artolian economy, worth 25.8 trillion hhhhhhhhhhs a year, is led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Uranium Mining, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 41,338 hhhhhhhhhhs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.
Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Artol's national animal is the hhhhhhhhhh, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.
