The Feudal Confederation of Aix-la-Brulens is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ritual sacrifices, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 669 million Aix-la-Brulensians are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Industry, with Environment, Education, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Law & Order is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bloemfontein. The average income tax rate is 14.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aix-la-Brulensian economy, worth 86.8 trillion brulens francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Retail. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 129,793 brulens francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The once prosperous capital is in utter decline, the nation's green cities are indeed concrete jungles, the government has certified several glow-in-the-dark athletes as drug free, and people regularly disappear off the streets and all evidence of them is destroyed. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Aix-la-Brulens's national animal is the hyena, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aix-la-Brulens is ranked 1,353rd in the world and 1st in Corporatocratic Paradise for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 16,815.2 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
