LeaderEren Yeager


The Eternal Empire of Ardretia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Eren Yeager with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 1.905 billion Ardretians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eldia. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Ardretian economy, worth 321 trillion dollars 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 168,610 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Extraordinary rendition is nothing out of the ordinary, local mafias have a tough time disposing of dead snitches without catching the attention of recycling authorities, fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal, and rocket boots and thermal detonators have become standard-issue military gear. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ardretia's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Yeagerism.

Ardretia is ranked 2,251st in the world and 140th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 97.53 on the Human Development Index.
