The Kingdom of Agadar is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by King Harold II with an iron fist, and notable for its fear of technology, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.121 billion Agadarians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dunstanton. The average income tax rate is 82.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Agadarian economy, worth a remarkable 2,453 trillion Agadarian guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, highly specialized black market in Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 121,940 Agadarian guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Large areas of Agadar are not accessible by the public, government bureaucrats shut down teenage yard-raking businesses for being counter-revolutionary, wheelchair-enabled paratroopers need access ramps to get onto planes but not off them, and police officers catch up on their paperwork while handing their caseload to PIs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Agadar's national animal is the phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Church of Agadar.

Agadar is ranked 18,574th in the world and 83rd in The Western Isles for Smartest Citizens, with 64.1 Quips Per Hour.
