The Grand Empire of Aerion is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Empress Ameria Wasterin with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 22.348 billion Aerionians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, the Environment, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial City. The average income tax rate is 88%, and even higher for the wealthy. 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.

Universities are populated by the spawn of the upper classes, citizens living in underground cities have developed a healthy green glow, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and the government is suspected of mass disappearing dissidents both at home and abroad. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aerion's national animal is the Aerionian White Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Ancient Aerionian Faith, and its currency is the Aerionian Gold Leaf.

Aerion is ranked 2nd in Western Atlantic and 3,114th in the world for Best Weather, with 240 Metres of Sunlight Above Expected.
