The Clown of Aeken is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Twisty the Clown with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.84 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, socially-minded 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 Jupiter. 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.

An increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, anti-government web sites are springing up, there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', and citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens. 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 Freaks, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Dollar.

Aeken is ranked 54th in Kotturheim and 110,381st in the world for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -20 on the Hayek Index.
