The Kingdom of Ardelenia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Vlad the Impaler with an even hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, daily referendums, and parental licensing program. The devout population of 1.163 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 85.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ardelean economy, worth 154 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 Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 133,155 Pula Rons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Left-wing militias train children how to properly burn down banks, colonial citizens are forced to sing the praise of the "Great Ardelean Liberator", the best way to be heard in politics is to speak softly and carry a big comedy prop, and the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters. 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 frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Muism Orthodox.

Ardelenia is ranked 241,938th in the world and 996th in 10000 Islands for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 17.93 Whatever.
