The Greater Ardokian Empire of Ardoki is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Grand Emperor Moriarty with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 12.941 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. 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 3,145 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 reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 243,044 Ardoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Trespassers entering Grand Emperor Moriarty's office are immediately vaporized, a new "thought police" branch is being developed, commuters are denied boarding for attempting to bring packed lunches onto trains, and the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters. 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 2,863rd in the world and 83rd in the South Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 91.52 Years.
