The Supreme land of Kingdom of Adlandia is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Monarchy with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, compulsory military service, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.572 billion Adlandians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cornelius. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 74.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Adlandian economy, worth 856 trillion Royal Mints a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 187,273 Royal Mints, with the richest citizens earning 9.9 times as much as the poorest.

Getting your license is a rite of passage for young adults, the media have begun calling the government treasury "Monarchy's stash", getting an autograph has become harder than ever, and Adlandian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kingdom of Adlandia's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is None.

Kingdom of Adlandia is ranked 169,382nd in the world and 105th in Force for Nudest, with 78.25 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
