The Republic of Adephia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Jon Nigas with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 3.418 billion Adephians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Healthcare, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Korbville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 22.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Adephian economy, worth 298 trillion marks a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 87,342 marks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 270,520 per year while the poor average 21,727, a ratio of 12.5 to 1.

A life spent suffering in silence is considered noble, signs saying "No Poor People or Weirdoes" are common outside shops and cafés, the nation is famous for having one of the world's largest porpoise hunting institutions, and political speeches that drill deep into bureaucratic fine detail could be said to be a little boring. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Adephia's national animal is the porpoise, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Atlantian Shruggolicism.

Adephia is ranked 20,927th in the world and 1st in Odrya for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 5,089.86 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
