LeaderEren Yeager


The Eternal Empire of Ardretia is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Eren Yeager with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, digital currency, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, cynical, humorless population of 1.778 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 98.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Ardretian economy, worth 286 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 161,114 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign governments regularly accuse the Ardretian military of war crimes, state officials tend to disappear after they forget to salute Eren Yeager's portrait, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", and loss of the ability to speak is a common affliction of the elderly. 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 46,621st in the world and 2,208th in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 4,885.7 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
