The Republic of Ardalia and Dracia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Premier Ardor Raszan with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, parental licensing program, and compulsory military service. The quiet, industrious population of 8.32 billion Ardalians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hran. The average income tax rate is 78.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ardalian economy, worth 872 trillion Leks 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 slick, highly efficient black market in Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Information Technology. 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 104,885 Leks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The sound of wooden legs echo throughout Ardalia and Dracia after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax, the importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, a well-funded social safety net protects the unfortunate, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ardalia and Dracia's national animal is the White Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Ardalian Orthodoxy.

Ardalia and Dracia is ranked 78,678th in the world and 5th in Thearea and Polythia for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 125,910.52 Standard Monetary Units.
