The Kingdom of Aquastareite is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 424 million Aquastareiteans 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 large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dolphinia. The average income tax rate is 66.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Aquastareitean economy, worth 31.1 trillion Dolphin Coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 73,265 Dolphin Coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Incarcerated crime lords manage their empires from massage tables, the tenet of free speech is held dear, the "Dreadnowt" is the pride and joy of the Aquastareitean Navy, and the national security service are a bunch of crooks. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aquastareite's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Aquastareite is ranked 20,397th in the world and 6th in Thegye for Most Beautiful Environments, with 957.74 pounds of wildlife per square mile.
