The Democratic Socialist States of Ardenaea is a massive, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, national health service, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.622 billion Ardenaeans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Defense receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mundelein. The average income tax rate is 75.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ardenaean economy, worth 250 trillion denars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 95,718 denars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Leader to meetings with foreign heads of state, and old dogs don't have to learn new tricks but they have to prove they haven't forgotten old ones. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Ardenaea's national animal is the red panda, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ardenaea is ranked 108,921st in the world and 3,853rd in The East Pacific for Most Secular, with 16.78 Atheism Rate.
