The Republic of Aetulia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Anthony Jackson with an even hand, and remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, infamous sell-swords, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 10.435 billion Aetulians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Valyria. The average income tax rate is 38.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aetulian economy, worth a remarkable 5,080 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. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 486,873 Drakkars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, children seem to be getting better at lying these days, school children across the country are staging hunger strikes to protest government-mandated salads, and games of cops and robbers typically end in at least one fatal shooting. 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 1,127th in the world and 52nd in The North Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 10,555.69 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
