The Social Democratic Republic of Ardoki is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Minister-President Moriarty with an iron fist, and notable for its closed borders, aversion to nipples, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 16.795 billion Ardokians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ardea. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Ardokian economy, worth a remarkable 4,107 trillion Ardoes a year, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 244,572 Ardoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The new airport at Mr. Giles' farm is panicking his sheep, the Ardokian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, parking's carefree without parking car fees, and soldiers on first dates introduce themselves only by their ranks and serial numbers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ardoki's national animal is the Donkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ardoki is ranked 6,954th in the world and 204th in the South Pacific for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 34,073.94 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
