The Solar Commonwealth of Aeridani is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Empress Fihano with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 5.03 billion Aeridanians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Defence, although Education and Law & Order are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Voykofala. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 90%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing industries.

College students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, it is a common belief that a sport isn't sport if there are no decapitations, record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported, and Members of Parliament are often found living in cardboard boxes. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aeridani's national animal is the Space Whale, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Solar Manifesto, and its currency is the Space Bit.

Aeridani is ranked 706th in Balder and 21,043rd in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 21 on the Enoch Index.
