The Kingdom of Adevia-Ardvilla is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by King Philip XIV with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, rampant corporate plagiarism, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 4.191 billion Adevians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. The average income tax rate is 38.3%.

The powerhouse Adevian economy, worth 349 trillion Adevian Pounds a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 83,499 Adevian Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Children are disappointed to learn that cavemen never had a yabba-dabba-doo time riding dinosaurs to work, human tissue is grown in vats as a delicacy as well as for transplants, children listen incredulously when their grandparents explain what a "running river" is, and Adevian actors literally work from cradle to grave. Crime is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Adevia-Ardvilla's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Protestant.

Adevia-Ardvilla is ranked 149,753rd in the world and 5,211th in Osiris for Most Extreme, scoring 7.35 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
