The Unified Fodlan of The Adrestian Empire is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Edelgard I with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.353 billion Adrestians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Enbarr. The average income tax rate is 71.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Adrestian Empirean economy, worth 192 trillion gold pieces a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 57,460 gold pieces, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tourists outnumber citizens two to one, mathematicians are hated by children across the country, political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads, and the government loves seeing the little people fight. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Adrestian Empire's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Adrestian Empire is ranked 46,034th in the world and 2nd in Fodlan for Most Extreme, scoring 28.35 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
