The Kingdom of Ardoland is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 342 million Bretons 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 Healthcare, Law & Order, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.4%.

The Ardolandian economy, worth 21.2 trillion Septims a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Trout Farming. Average income is 61,994 Septims, with the richest citizens earning 8.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government is notorious for leaving citizens with almost nothing from their inheritance, one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, all judiciary cases are decided in the court of public opinion, and textbooks are exactly twice as heavy as they used to be. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ardoland's national animal is the Red Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ardoland is ranked 76,004th in the world and 8th in The Empire of Tamriel for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 76.16 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
