|Animal||Arstanelian Peregrine Falcon|
The Kingdom of Arstanel is a very large, safe nation, notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and complete lack of prisons. The cynical population of 167 million Arstanelians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.
The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 27.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The strong Arstanelian economy, worth 9.29 trillion Cendaros a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 55,611 Cendaros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
All artwork is carefully screened for offensive material, catcalling has been replaced by slut-shaming, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, and some electoral districts are without a representative as they are stuck with perpetual revotes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Arstanel's national animal is the Arstanelian Peregrine Falcon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.
