The Republic of Aihon is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by James with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 9.172 billion Aihonians 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, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nieuwe Opstandsstad. The average income tax rate is 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aihonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,373 trillion Jeens a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 149,781 Jeens, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors who mutter "Oh my God" often lose their medical license, nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, and many friends and relatives of James have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aihon's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Aihon is ranked 2,787th in the world and 83rd in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.82 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
