The Unified Kingdom of Aetoria is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, keen interest in outer space, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 10.795 billion Aetorians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aetoria City. The average income tax rate is 77.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aetorian economy, worth a remarkable 1,769 trillion Pounds 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 Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 163,898 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love, fifteen-year-olds cannot walk younger siblings to school without a professional Childcare and Education Certificate, truancy officers have a hard time catching children trained in advanced camouflage skills, and couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aetoria's national animal is the Gryphon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aetoria is ranked 202,392nd in the world and 198th in The Kingdom of Great Britain for Fattest Citizens, with 4.81 Obesity Rate.
