Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Grand Empire of Aerion is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Padshah Empress Ameria Wasterin with an iron fist, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 24.018 billion Aerionians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The enormous, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 79.9%.

The all-consuming Aerionian economy, worth a remarkable 1,984 trillion Aerionian Gold Leaves a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 82,619 Aerionian Gold Leaves, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 341,189 per year while the poor average 13,153, a ratio of 25.9 to 1.

A new Brasilistani government has become a daily report on the main evening news, the nation's armed forces are recruiting thousands to help colonise Brasilistan, military spending is on the increase, and "To Hell or to Marshland" is a common settler cry directed at native Brasilistanis. 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, and its national religion is The Ancient Aerionian Religion.

Aerion is ranked 10th in Western Atlantic and 117,256th in the world for Most Primitive, scoring -116 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
