The Free Land of Ardeetiana is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Zupremo Dictata with a fair hand, and remarkable for its digital currency, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 21.69 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 3,141 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 major contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an impressive 144,829 Liberty Dollar and Bitcoins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 849,923 per year while the poor average 11,528, a ratio of 73.7 to 1.

A valid legal defense is 'dead men tell no tales', bombs are permitted on planes for the 'security of the passengers', claiming to have performed the Heimlich Maneuver is a popular defense for assault charges, and drowning sailors are hung out to dry. 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 240,942nd in the world and 1,207th in 10000 Islands for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -37.68 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
