The Commune of Aylwater is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Debated with an iron fist, and renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.699 billion Aylwaterians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Berlin. The average income tax rate is 62.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aylwaterian economy, worth 320 trillion Aylmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,832 Aylmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Prisoners pray grey skies are gonna clear up, police regularly arrest families playing Monopoly, running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, and 13-year-old internet trolls are treated as a threat on par with terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aylwater's national animal is the Canis Rufus, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Christianity.

Aylwater is ranked 15,246th in the world and 716th in The North Pacific for Most Devout, with 1,510.28 Prayers Per Hour.
