The Bottom Gear Republic of Ardenswije is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by President James May with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, unlimited-speed roads, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 759 million Ardenswijeans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wannerfredderwowiesadnerreschonerstraßer. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Ardenswijean economy, worth 76.6 trillion Ardennyies a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 100,897 Ardennyies, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Door-to-door salesmen are frequently beaten up by 'vigilantes', school lockers are filled with fancy underwear, the hit new medical TV show "Home" prominently features the brand of painkiller the lead doctor is addicted to, and kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ardenswije's national animal is the Ardenswijean mountain goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ardenswije is ranked 226,810th in the world and 9,375th in the South Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -7.39 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
