LeaderEren Yeager


The Eternal Empire of Ardretia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Eren Yeager with an iron fist, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 2.177 billion Ardretians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eldia. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Ardretian economy, worth 388 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 178,374 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, the new Ardretian-made OS is buggier and more inconvenient than a horse-drawn carriage, and getting an autograph has become harder than ever. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ardretia's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Yeagerism.

Ardretia is ranked 161,220th in the world and 6,033rd in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -4.27 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
