The United Kingdom of Aetsveld-Aalstad is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, free-roaming dinosaurs, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.03 billion Aetsveld-Aalstedelingens love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aalstad-stad. The average income tax rate is 87.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Aetsveld-Aalstadian economy, worth 187 trillion klinkels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. Average income is 92,295 klinkels, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Tombstones are ten feet high to accommodate the names of inhabitants, the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', citizens are encouraged to show displeasure with politicians by poking them with sharp metal sticks, and the nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aetsveld-Aalstad's national animal is the Aetsvelder-Lionmouthbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
