The Kingdom of Archadien is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord Commander Ryle with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, enslaved workforce, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 11.186 billion Archadiens 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 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. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Archadien economy, worth a remarkable 3,652 trillion Gøtzes a year, is fairly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Information Technology, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 326,513 Gøtzes, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,018,831 per year while the poor average 22,850, a ratio of 88.3 to 1.

Public incontinence is a growing problem amongst the nation's women, drug deals return to the streets as legions of undercover officers stalk the dark web, wait staff claim to like it when odorous customers flirt with them, and asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes. 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 4,048th in the world and 1st in The Imperium of Archadien for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 2,107.57 Tourists Per Hour.
