The Corporate States of Aeioux is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by GOV-AI Xerathul with an iron fist, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.832 billion Aeiouxians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Illion. The average income tax rate is 77.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aeiouxian economy, worth a remarkable 1,213 trillion Dust Particles a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is an impressive 137,362 Dust Particles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A weakened police force struggles to maintain law and order, every workday begins with group therapy, citizens know never to accept cookies from strangers, and subscribing to the Benevolence Society for Impoverished Leaders is an effective way to dodge the draft. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aeioux's national animal is the Grey Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aeioux is ranked 10,281st in the world and 21st in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Beautiful Environments, with 1,519.9 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
