The United States of Adersfield is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, digital currency, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 774 million Adersis are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adamstown. The average income tax rate is 57.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Adersfieldian economy, worth 109 trillion marks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 142,081 marks, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, people who have lived their entire lives in Adersfield are shocked to discover that they are not citizens, torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, and Adersfieldian soldiers are assured their new ray-guns will finally power up after the next round of ominous chanting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Adersfield's national animal is the emu, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Adersfield is ranked 34,946th in the world and 4th in The Wolf Clan for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 3,854.59 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
