Population596 million



The Free Land of Aianistan is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 596 million Aianistanians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yerevan. The average income tax rate is 69.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Aianistanian economy, worth 28.7 trillion pesos 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 led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 48,132 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is on the rise as DNA sampling has been all but outlawed, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets, and cyber-crime and tin-foil hat sales are both increasing at record rates. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aianistan's national animal is the sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aianistan is ranked 184,871st in the world and 5,601st in the Rejected Realms for Most Avoided, scoring 0.75 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
