The Kingdom of Archadien is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Prime Minster Salim Bradley with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 8.127 billion Archadiens have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Estoril. The average income tax rate is 69.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Archadien economy, worth a remarkable 2,251 trillion Gøtzes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 277,031 Gøtzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Chrome-clad space marines are such stuff that dreams are made on, snap elections are called over every minor impasse, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, and a ban on robots in disguise has transformed the entertainment industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Archadien's national animal is the Muzart, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Monarchism.

Archadien is ranked 4,083rd in the world and 239th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 93.32 on the Human Development Index.
