The Federal Republic of Ardereig is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Hannes Wilhelm-Kell with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.971 billion Ardei 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 Healthcare, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Budysin. The average income tax rate is 32.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Ardei economy, worth 119 trillion Pjenjezies a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Cheese Exports, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 60,879 Pjenjezies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, Ardereig is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, and there's more vermin than ever on the metro. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ardereig's national animal is the Bull, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Protestantism.
