The Federation of Aguatania

Regional Influence: Squire

Location: the South Pacific



Population1.768 billion


The Federation of Aguatania is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 1.768 billion Aguatanians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 85.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aguatanian economy, worth 224 trillion Lilitas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 126,941 Lilitas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, therapists dispense hugs for heroin dealers and cuddles for crackheads, and anti-government web sites are springing up. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aguatania's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aguatania is ranked 974th in the world and 67th in the South Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 73,657 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
