The United Socialist States of Ardgellardoland is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Ervin Dushku with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.379 billion Ardgellardolandians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ardgella. The average income tax rate is 49.5%.

The Ardgellardolandian economy, worth 168 trillion pesos a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Woodchip Exports, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 49,932 pesos, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, Ervin Dushku is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, the Ardgellardoland Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, and feuilletons can only be deciphered with a Galliennais dictionary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ardgellardoland's national animal is the kiwi, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Albanian folk beliefs.

Ardgellardoland is ranked 55,752nd in the world and 147th in Oneid for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 2.53 Bank.
