The Forgotten Paradise of Ardonii is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Achillean Nestoris with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and flagrant waste-dumping. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 787 million Ardonians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crown Peak. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 62.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Ardonian economy, worth 125 trillion Sterlings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 159,486 Sterlings, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 493,203 per year while the poor average 39,761, a ratio of 12.4 to 1.

Achillean Nestoris's media campaigns take a hiatus around exam week, the ABI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays, a degree in Achillean Nestoris Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers, and an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ardonii's national animal is the Ender Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ardonii is ranked 47,231st in the world and 1,454th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 12.4 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
