The United Kingdoms of Wardency is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Emperor Gustaf V with an iron fist, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, frequent executions, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.4 billion Wardish 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 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 88.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Wardish economy, worth 843 trillion Okronuas a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 248,184 Okronuas, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,587,338 per year while the poor average 15,887, a ratio of 99.9 to 1.

Conscientious objectors are hanged as traitors, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, families consisting of more than three people are forced to split up, and tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable 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 Wardish Elisimism.

Wardency is ranked 231,456th in the world and 9,383rd in The North Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 6.76 Tourists Per Hour.
