The Holy Black Dragon of Ardonii is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Achillean Nestoris with a fair hand, and remarkable for its prohibition of alcohol, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 1.014 billion Ardonians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crown Peak. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ardonian economy, worth 174 trillion Irish golds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 172,042 Irish golds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 498,253 per year while the poor average 47,076, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

The "boy who cried wolf" policy makes sick people reluctant to call an ambulance, neighboring nations are tired of Ardonii's big fish stories, knock-knock jokes regularly get removed from websites for being too edgy, and replacement organs are grown in vats. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ardonii's national animal is the Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is -currently empty-.

Ardonii is ranked 9,556th in the world and 564th in The North Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 15.17 bananas ingested per day.
