The Stratagem Douplex of Arduo is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Petroyz Maurs Vi Banel with an even hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, prohibition of alcohol, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 6.974 billion Arduyans are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Polarot. The average income tax rate is 8.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Arduyan economy, worth a remarkable 1,235 trillion shimis a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 177,135 shimis, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

The government's policy is 'all pain, no grain', polling place volunteers are suddenly opening a huge number of offshore bank accounts, most academic research has ground to a halt, and education for the poor is learning to ask "do you want fries with that?". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Arduo's national animal is the aurk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Children of the Law.

Arduo is ranked 125,574th in the world and 64th in Right to Life for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 570.17 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
