The Grand Constitutional Duchy of The Ardenner Forest is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jean-Pierre-Christopphe de Luxembourg with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, soft-spoken computers, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate population of 4.285 billion Ardennians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bastogne. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Ardennese economy, worth 416 trillion Ardennisian Francs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 97,174 Ardennisian Francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Children who display even minimal sporting aptitude are immediately assigned a personal trainer, children prefer to begin their day with push-ups rather than breakfast, vital infrastructure development is on hold because of 'nature and stuff', and the Party has more splits than a yo-yo dieter's trousers. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Ardenner Forest's national animal is the Boar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
