The Democratic States of Auquatania is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and public floggings. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 651 million Auquatanians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ethangrad. The average income tax rate is 25.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Auquatanian economy, worth 63.5 trillion Shmeckels a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Trout Farming. Average income is 97,564 Shmeckels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Safe drinking water is considered a luxury, convicted criminals are given free limo rides to jail, officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, and the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Ethangrad Times is sold out. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Auquatania's national animal is the porpoise, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Auquatania is ranked 829th in the world and 576th in The North Pacific for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with 168 Valid Endorsements.
