The Kingdom of Wardency is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Wilheim IV with an iron fist, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, frequent executions, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.711 billion Wardens are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Industry and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Education and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Priastand. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 83.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Warden economy, worth 594 trillion Okronuas a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 219,241 Okronuas, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,413,032 per year while the poor average 13,743, a ratio of 102 to 1.

Military chaplains grow frustrated with their long commutes, Maxtopians are both starving and giddy after the Warden military unleashed its biological weapons, 'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Warden Space Agency, and Bigtopian relations have become a minefield. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force. Wardency's national animal is the Peregrine falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Notchism.

Wardency is ranked 166,254th in the world and 7,354th in The North Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -4.74 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
