The Grand Duchy of Ardeyn is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate, democratic population of 575 million Ardeyns love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hildebrand. The average income tax rate is 63.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Ardeynic economy, worth 56.8 trillion Squires a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 98,701 Squires, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, evasive politicians don't fail to strongly commit to not committing to a course of non-inaction, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, and pet owners must make a payment if their charges leave a deposit. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ardeyn's national animal is the Black bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ardeyn is ranked 11,857th in the world and 19th in The Region That Has No Big Banks for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 54.3 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
