The Salacious Exploits of Adaia is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Snufkin with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 24.209 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, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Industry is also considered important, while Environment and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shimooooka. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Adaian economy, worth an astonishing 10,917 trillion abominations 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, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 450,949 abominations, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,475,639 per year while the poor average 15,555, a ratio of 223 to 1.

Baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward, children often explain to their parents that the Mega Ultimate Sword Fist was worth the thousand-abomination charge on their phone bill, Snufkin lights cigars with a hundred-abomination bill, and tour guides tell passengers that there is beautiful architecture just behind the two-hundred-foot concrete walls. 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 colourless green idea, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is 2-Tone.

Adaia is ranked 148,483rd in the world and 3,623rd in the West Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 53.14 on the Human Development Index.
