The Armed Republic of Administrality is a small, economically powerful nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 10 million are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, pro-business government is mainly concerned with Law & Order, although Social Equality and Commerce are on the agenda. Income tax is unheard of. A healthy private sector is led by the Pizza Delivery industry, followed by Book Publishing and Uranium Mining.

All tariffs have been abolished, the government is avowedly atheist, Administrality's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and same-sex marriages are increasingly common. Crime is a major problem.
