AnimalArdentiana Eagle

The New Eagle And Navian Imperia of Ardentiana is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Empress Maria Buona Beriataham with an even hand, and notable for its aversion to nipples, unlimited-speed roads, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, cheerful population of 2.467 billion Ardentianans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Law & Order also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nova Vista. The average income tax rate is 70.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ardentianan economy, worth 280 trillion Calatarians a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 113,570 Calatarians, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Ardentiana's radio stations, the last thing Ardentianan soldiers hear before charging into battle is a preacher trying to convert them, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, and the reams of paperwork accompanying any electronic item are a recognised contributor to national deforestation. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ardentiana's national animal is the Ardentiana Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Roman Catholicism.

Ardentiana is ranked 113,251st in the world and 476th in Europe for Most Devout, with 246.94 prayers per hour.
