The Kingdom of Adaranthia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Pino Noye with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, digital currency, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.472 billion Adaranthians 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 relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Heblag. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Adaranthian economy, worth 973 trillion Adars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 280,457 Adars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,293,972 per year while the poor average 36,743, a ratio of 35.2 to 1.

Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume, government theft from poor artists to give to rich allies has been dubbed the "reverse Robin Hood" policy, 3D printed organs are a breath of new life for the sick and elderly, and popular websites like NationStates are blocked for "national security". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Adaranthia's national animal is the Adaranthian Goat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Adaranthian Catholic.

Adaranthia is ranked 4,802nd in the world and 98th in the Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 16,416.2 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
