The Republic of Aetulia is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Anthony Jackson with an even hand, and notable for its ritual sacrifices, sprawling nuclear power plants, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 9.995 billion Aetulians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Industry, Education, and Law & Order are also considered important, while International Aid and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valyria. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Aetulian economy, worth a remarkable 4,072 trillion Drakkars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 407,473 Drakkars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,314,788 per year while the poor average 95,505, a ratio of 13.8 to 1.

Foreigners must sell an arm and a leg to afford surgery in Aetulia, people say chess victor President Anthony Jackson can kill you with mind-bullets, foreign lack of enthusiasm for Aetulian nose-flute disco metal is seen as a reasonable casus belli, and giant beards and handlebar moustaches are increasingly popular. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Aetulia's national animal is the Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Aetulia is ranked 148,662nd in the world and 6,129th in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 52.95 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
