LeaderEren Yeager


The Eternal Empire of Ardretia is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Eren Yeager with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, prohibition of alcohol, and public floggings. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 1.922 billion Ardretians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eldia. The average income tax rate is 98.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Ardretian economy, worth 327 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 170,283 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The doctor has cold hands, military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, the fate of the world literally rests on Eren Yeager's fingers, and war criminals are given full state funerals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ardretia's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Yeagerism.

Ardretia is ranked 227,444th in the world and 9,061st in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.18 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
