The Doctor of Aeken is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Brigid Tenenbaum with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.327 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Commerce, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rapture. The average income tax rate is 99%. 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.

Bus ads propagandize causes ranging from sexual revolution to religious pogroms, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, and anti-government web sites are springing up. 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 Mother Goose, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Dollar.

Aeken is ranked 145th in Tofulinearity and 109,929th in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -20 on the Hayek Index.
