The Free Land of The Republic Of Ardenhelm is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Andrew Bjorn with an even hand, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed population of 4.744 billion The Republics Of Ardenhelmian 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 government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass -- juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 42%, but much higher for the wealthy. 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.
Scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, CEOs and corporate executives are frequently found striking for better stock options, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Republic Of Ardenhelm's national animal is the Reindeer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Ardenhelm State Pound or Ardenian Pound.
