The Democratic Socialist States of Ardenaea is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.46 billion Ardenaeans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The large government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mundelein. The average income tax rate is 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Ardenaean economy, worth 333 trillion denars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 96,384 denars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Leader to meetings with foreign heads of state, old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones, laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts, and the government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ardenaea's national animal is the red panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
