The Free Land of Ardeetiana is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Zupremo Dictata with a fair hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, deadly medical pandemics, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 19.507 billion Ardeetianans live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boswellington. Income tax is unheard of.

The Ardeetianan economy, worth a remarkable 2,578 trillion Liberty Dollar and Bitcoins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 132,188 Liberty Dollar and Bitcoins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 709,744 per year while the poor average 12,846, a ratio of 55.2 to 1.

Rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century, bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, signs saying "No Poor People or Weirdoes" are common outside shops and cafés, and criminals lock themselves in their mums' basements to avoid prison. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Ardeetiana's national animal is the Masked Lapwing, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Pastafarian.

Ardeetiana is ranked 170,550th in the world and 1,268th in 10000 Islands for Most Ignorant Citizens, with 0.81 Missed References Per Hour.
