The Kingdom of Wardency is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by King Wilheim IV Torbjorn with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, unlimited-speed roads, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.268 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, moralistic, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, although Industry and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Priastad. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 77.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Warden economy, worth 466 trillion Blemflarcks a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 205,784 Blemflarcks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,263,023 per year while the poor average 14,674, a ratio of 86.1 to 1.

King Wilheim IV Torbjorn's luxurious new home has been designated as a protected cultural heritage site, citizens live in superstitious fear of the mysterious glowing clouds that float over Wardency, the industries of Wardency are coughing all the way to the bank, and one-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. Wardency's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Notchism.

Wardency is ranked 36,535th in the world and 1,544th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 67.11 on the Rand Index.
