The United Empire of Armador is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Frederick V with an even hand, and notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 14.547 billion Armadorians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sirene. The average income tax rate is 95.3%.

The all-consuming Armadorian economy, worth a remarkable 1,973 trillion Aurics a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 135,669 Aurics, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation grinds to a halt on the anniversary of every marginally noteworthy event, unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, kids laugh off vandalism and arson as "just fun", and factories are regularly demolished to make way for low-cost housing areas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Armador's national animal is the Sirene Stag, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Foundationalism.

Armador is ranked 236,431st in the world and 10th in The Transgender Region for Rudest Citizens, with 9.22 Insults Per Minute.
