The Stairway to Heaven of Stone Circle Aviators is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Thor with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, sprawling nuclear power plants, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 27.022 billion Stone Circle Aviatorsians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, although Education, Administration, and Spirituality are also considered important, while Welfare receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stonehenge. The average income tax rate is 81.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Stone Circle Aviatorsian economy, worth a remarkable 1,658 trillion nibs a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 61,382 nibs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

No one tells their son "you're the man of the house" any more, television characters who ask how someone's doing are charged with harassment, the "right of sanctuary" stops police pursuit into temples and churches, and hundreds of sailors ride the good ship Thor day after day. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stone Circle Aviators's national animal is the side hill Sporan, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Iron Age Druidry.

Stone Circle Aviators is ranked 211,487th in the world and 32nd in 0000000000000 for Most Politically Free, scoring 15.57 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
