The Major of Aeken is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Motoko Kusanagi with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.401 billion Aekenians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Section 9. The average income tax rate is 97.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Aekenian economy, worth 860 trillion Yen a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 134,490 Yen, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Local executives are seen on the corner with cardboard signs reading "will oppress the masses for food", photographers can be found hiding behind the curtains in Motoko Kusanagi's bedroom, most citizens in Aeken are abject pyrophobes after extremely graphic pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government, and birth rates have hit an all-time low. 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 Cyborg, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Aeken is ranked 75th in Kotturheim and 112,337th in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -8 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
