The Old Republic of Aeternitatia is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by William G Gallows with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 6.709 billion Aeternitatians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Idras. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 52.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Aeternitatian economy, worth 815 trillion Favents a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 121,611 Favents, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 373,773 per year while the poor average 30,587, a ratio of 12.2 to 1.

Concussed Owlball players cannot remember their lineup position, the tenet of free speech is held dear, the number of deaths due to poor fungus identification is mushrooming, and tourists visit Aeternitatia to mass-moon Aeternitatian politicians. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Aeternitatia's national animal is the Owl, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aeternitatia is ranked 53,252nd in the world and 52nd in The League of Conservative Nations for Most Pro-Market, scoring 58.44 on the Rand Index.
