The Dictatorship of Aeschlandia is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its aversion to nipples, compulsory military service, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 3.656 billion Aeschlandians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 15.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Aeschlandian economy, worth 421 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 115,329 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

A typical fast food menu item could serve a small army, anyone claiming to be a messiah is promptly put to death, the nation is renowned abroad for its love of blood and guts, and artificial intelligences seeking exciting work are overcome with ennui. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aeschlandia's national animal is the dolphin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Aeschlandia is ranked 59,611th in the world and 1,631st in Balder for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 88.96 on the Hayek Index.
