The Kingdom of Ardelenia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Vlad the Impaler with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, daily referendums, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, devout population of 3.589 billion Ardelenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brastovia. The average income tax rate is 97.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ardelean economy, worth 696 trillion Pula Rons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 193,978 Pula Rons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Theft is considered to be okay if the crime happened a long time ago, taxpayers receive expenditure reports from the Grand High Poobah of the Order of Violet, the "war on terror" doesn't seem to be making Ardelenians any less frightened, and citizens must inform the government each time they have a haircut. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ardelenia's national animal is the Strigoi Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Muism Orthodox.

Ardelenia is ranked 4,853rd in the world and 180th in Balder for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 14,995.8 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
