The Secular Reich of Ardiveds is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Kaiser Wilhelm III Hohenzollern with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.918 billion Ardivesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Beerlinsburg. The average income tax rate is 57.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ardivedsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,541 trillion Runadts a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 222,752 Runadts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Retail boutiques encourage citizens to honor their military veterans by purchasing flag-patterned underwear, politicians have been known to swim in pools filled with Runadts, Maxtopian tourists make expensive pilgrimages to Beerlinsburg to enjoy their national art, and the official Ardivedsian Phrase Book weighs as much as a small child. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ardiveds's national animal is the Prussian Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ardiveds is ranked 6,926th in the world and 11th in The Hole To Hide In for Rudest Citizens, with 127.34 Insults Per Minute.
