The Federation of Aigania is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by AIGANIA with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, rampant corporate plagiarism, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, humorless population of 23.578 billion Aiganians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Center. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Aiganian economy, worth a remarkable 9,287 trillion Points 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. Average income is an amazing 393,888 Points, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma, and a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Aigania's national animal is the Monster Werewolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Aiganiaism.

Aigania is ranked 182,379th in the world and 6,999th in Lazarus for Most Pro-Market, scoring -77.78 on the Rand Index.
