The Dictatorship of Aeschlandia is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, public floggings, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 1.457 billion Aeschlandians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.0%.

The powerhouse Aeschlandian economy, worth 156 trillion pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 107,390 pounds, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 364,692 per year while the poor average 23,330, a ratio of 15.6 to 1.

Commemorative mugs remembering last year's Black Friday Crockery Riots are a best seller this year, heart attacks are regarded as a coming of age ritual, it's widely agreed that to tennis players love means nothing, and torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals. 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 3,734th in the world and 200th in Balder for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 9,406.7 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
