The Kingdom of Archadien is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Prime Minster Salim Bradley with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 8.168 billion Archadiens enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Estoril. The average income tax rate is 68.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Archadien economy, worth a remarkable 2,263 trillion Gøtzes a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 277,173 Gøtzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Populations of two-headed Muzarts have been found around recently-uncovered archaeological sites, rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, edutainment video games are taking Archadien's students to the next level, and a suspicious number of John Smiths are known to donate to Archadien politicians. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Archadien's national animal is the Muzart, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Monarchism.

Archadien is ranked 58,644th in the world and 3,171st in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 52.89 on the Rand Index.
