The Inmate of Aeken is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Sophia Burset with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 4.745 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Education, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Litchfield. The average income tax rate is 97%. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Motorists must pay to enter inner-cities during peak hours, the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, TV shows must meet strict ethnicity quotas, and same-sex marriages are increasingly common. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aeken's national animal is the Feral Chicken, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Dollar.

Aeken is ranked 147th in Tofuline and 119,805th in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -10 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
