The People's Republic of Ardelan is a huge, safe nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic population of 756 million Ardelanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ardelanian economy, worth 75.0 trillion Ardes 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 Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 99,233 Ardes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The latest national park is visited by more sharks than people, devotion to God is only skin-deep, even the most lowly council pen-pusher has the same political power as a senior minister, and they who do not work shall not eat. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ardelan's national animal is the Crow, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ardelan is ranked 260,592nd in the world and 1,722nd in The Communist Bloc for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -200.32 on the Hayek Index.
