The Empire of Ardomaravium is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 623 million Ardomaraviumians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.2%.

The powerhouse Ardomaraviumian economy, worth 52.0 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 83,389 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Journalists giggle uncontrollably while reporting the nation's drug bonfires, children need to wear helmets and safety harnesses before mounting a carousel horse, fans doing the wave routinely disrupt the finals of Go tournaments, and the military will start wars with other nations on a lark. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ardomaravium's national animal is the lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ardomaravium is ranked 29,276th in the world and 6th in Niamark for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,290.11 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
