The Jolly Nation of United Adaikes is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Lucas Salazar with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 6.917 billion Adaik'sians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Adaik's C'ntral. The average income tax rate is 91.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient United Adaikesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,105 trillion florins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 159,853 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Kids these days know how to throw a proper punch, companies have begun running campaigns to stop people from remembering their brand name, the government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, and photographers have to apply for a license to photograph Lucas Salazar. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Adaikes's national animal is the bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

United Adaikes is ranked 3,734th in the world and 78th in the West Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 95.5 on the Human Development Index.
