Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Land of Aels is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Chief Minister Paul Duncan-Jones with a fair hand, and notable for its national health service, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 8.24 billion Aelsh love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Drayfill. The average income tax rate is 77.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Aelsh economy, worth 352 trillion Punts a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Furniture Restoration, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 42,810 Punts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Only adults may purchase violent video games, guns are banned, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, and the government has started a campaign to crack down on road rage and encourage alternate means of commuting. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aels's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Church of Aels.

Aels is ranked 60,339th in the world and 51st in Rushmore for Longest Average Lifespans, with 64 Years.
