The United Kingdoms of Wardency is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Gustaf V with an iron fist, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, flagrant waste-dumping, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.289 billion Wardish are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Environment and Education are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Priastand. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 91.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Wardish economy, worth a remarkable 1,148 trillion Okronuas a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 267,833 Okronuas, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,677,721 per year while the poor average 18,122, a ratio of 92.6 to 1.

The rainbow assortment of chemicals in the water has turned the frogs gay, children as young as twelve are conscripted into the armed forces, the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament, and mostly women are seen and not heard. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Wardency's national animal is the Peregrine falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Wardish Elisimism.

Wardency is ranked 4,124th in the world and 161st in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 11.71 Weapons Per Person.
