The Holy Empire of Aardvarkanistan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Arthur with a fair hand, and notable for its public floggings, complete lack of prisons, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.57 billion Aardvarkanistanians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tubulidentata. The average income tax rate is 68.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Aardvarkanistanian economy, worth 99.9 trillion Varks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Pizza Delivery, and Trout Farming. Average income is 38,866 Varks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Tubulidentata Times is sold out, the endangered saltwater humpback Aardvark is only seen in captivity programs, credit scores fluctuate wildly with every change of government, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aardvarkanistan's national animal is the Aardvark, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aardvarkanistan is ranked 78,456th in the world and 247th in The Leftist Assembly for Most Developed, scoring 58.84 on the Human Development Index.
