The Kingdom of Archadien is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Wellick with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 6.53 billion Archadiens are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Estoril. The average income tax rate is 66.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Archadien economy, worth a remarkable 1,642 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 251,525 Gøtzes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Endocrinology is a rapidly growing field of study, politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads, advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, and the law forbids arson, murder, and low-quality cheese. 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 Great White Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Monarchism.

Archadien is ranked 10,119th in the world and 1st in The Archadien Empire for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 401,920.29 Standard Monetary Units.
