Aguaria Major

LeaderPrime Minister Unenlagia

AnimalFiery-Throated Hummingbird

The Transoceanic Republic of Aguaria Major is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Unenlagia with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.955 billion Aguarians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Aguarbanapolis. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Aguarian economy, worth a remarkable 1,976 trillion Inaguas 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 284,112 Inaguas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Board shorts have replaced board rooms, glittering new sports stadiums adorn every city and town, the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament, and conscripts often volunteer for a second tour of duty so they can get a ticket to next year's Army Revue. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aguaria Major's national animal is the Fiery-Throated Hummingbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Aguaria Major is ranked 152nd in the world and 6th in Lazarus for Most Developed, scoring 98.81 on the Human Development Index.
