The Matriarchy of Aeljae is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sasha Avina von Aeljae with a fair hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.929 billion Aeljaeans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elja. The average income tax rate is 88.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aeljaean economy, worth 514 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 175,548 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has spent days debating the merits of a petition calling for a ban on sporks, Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping, vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes, and international commentators accuse the nation of aggressive cultural imperialism. Crime is totally unknown. Aeljae's national animal is the Pegasus, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aeljae is ranked 21,103rd in the world and 768th in The East Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,718.22 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
