The Empire of Ardretia is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, compulsory vegetarianism, and zero percent divorce rate. The cynical population of 542 million 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 Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eldia. The average income tax rate is 89.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Ardretian economy, worth 48.7 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 highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Average income is 89,824 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government popup ads are springing up like weeds, mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past, enemy navies sail within bombardment range of major coastal cities with impunity, and cruel and unusual punishments are being crowdsourced. 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.

Ardretia is ranked 3,169th in the world and 926th in The North Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 28,119 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
