The Unspoken Rule of Adaia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Snufkin with an iron fist, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, flagrant waste-dumping, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.757 billion Adaians 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 minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shimooooka. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Adaian economy, worth a remarkable 9,147 trillion secrets a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 440,678 secrets, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,233,440 per year while the poor average 48,233, a ratio of 46.3 to 1.

Becoming a missionary is a sure-fire route to martyrdom, major polluting industries have painted a lot of their machines green to give an impression of caring about the environment, people believe that if you teach a man to fish he won't buy fish from you any more, and it is common to still see adults with training wheels on their bikes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Adaia's national animal is the squid, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is 2-Tone.

Adaia is ranked 131,624th in the world and 4,980th in the West Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 13.14 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
