The Empire of Adevia-Ardvilla is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Philip XIV with an iron fist, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, complete lack of prisons, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.582 billion Imperials are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Empire City. The average income tax rate is 42.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Imperial economy, worth 434 trillion Free Imperial Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 94,747 Free Imperial Pounds, with the richest citizens earning 5.2 times as much as the poorest.

Blackface performers claim they are being deliberately ironic, the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, commuter vessels have trouble staying afloat due to increased passengers, and the nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Adevia-Ardvilla's national animal is the Starving Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Protestant.

Adevia-Ardvilla is ranked 32,694th in the world and 1,419th in Osiris for Highest Economic Output, with 434 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
