The United Kingdoms of Adenian is a massive, safe nation, ruled by High King Evan Darksky VII with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.772 billion are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adenia City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
Child labor has been outlawed, the nation is experiencing a severe shortage of sporting events, the government has instituted 'traveller reservations' across the country, and bicyclists are banned from major roads. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Adenian's national animal is the Husky Furry, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is undecided, and its currency is the Adenic.
