|Leader||Vlad the Impaler|
The Kingdom of Ardelenia is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Vlad the Impaler with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, frequent executions, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, devout population of 1.776 billion Ardelenians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.
The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brastovia. The average income tax rate is 94.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Ardelean economy, worth 274 trillion Pula Rons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 154,724 Pula Rons, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them, the countryside is shrouded by wind farms, Air Ardelenia tickets have reached sky-high prices due to a complete monopoly on air travel, and for the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ardelenia's national animal is the Strigoi Bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Muism Orthodox.
