The Eternal Realm of Agadar is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by King Harold II with an iron fist, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, national health service, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 22.98 billion Agadarians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dunstanton. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 77.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Agadarian economy, worth a remarkable 3,159 trillion Agadarian guilders a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 137,473 Agadarian guilders, with the richest citizens earning 9.4 times as much as the poorest.

Concerned environmentalists wipe away their tears with tissues sourced from Tasmanian old-growth redwoods, warfare increasingly resembles a video game, plain-clothes police officers follow Dàguó tourists everywhere they go, and government-sponsored gallows are being erected by Violetist temples. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Agadar's national animal is the phoenix, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Church of Agadar.

Agadar is ranked 182,004th in the world and 198th in The Western Isles for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -6.37 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
