The Imperial Socio-Cybersynacy of Aaecilia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Imperator Nautilus VIII with an iron fist, and renowned for its pith helmet sales, avant-garde cinema, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, cynical, cheerful population of 11.97 billion Aaecilians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ignis Centra. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Aaecilian economy, worth a remarkable 3,452 trillion Imperial Notes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 288,429 Imperial Notes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

They who do not work shall not eat, nobody thinks that the Godfather was bettered by Part 2, Aaecilian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, and a well-funded social safety net protects the unfortunate. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aaecilia's national animal is the Aecilian Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aaecilia is ranked 207,387th in the world and 7,689th in Lazarus for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -40.82 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
