The Tenuous Excuses of Adaia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Snufkin with an iron fist, and notable for its zero percent divorce rate, complete lack of public education, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 17.284 billion Adaians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bear Origin. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Adaian economy, worth a remarkable 7,609 trillion bottlecaps a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 440,284 bottlecaps, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,220,230 per year while the poor average 48,677, a ratio of 45.6 to 1.

Where your food came from is an unknowable mystery, farmers are complaining that the buzzing and the sparks from the nearby MagRail are blighting their crops, toxic smog is dismissed as the populace just "letting off steam", and 9 out of 10 consumers think that vitamins can cure cancer. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Adaia's national animal is the squid, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Jarritos.

Adaia is ranked 4,533rd in the world and 129th in the West Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 386.71 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
