“For A New Glorious Aerion”
|Category: Iron Fist Consumerists|
Regional Influence: Handshaker
Location: Western Atlantic
The Grand Empire of Aerion is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, ruled by Empress Ameria Wasterin with an iron fist, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 23.456 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, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Imperial City. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Aerionian economy, worth a remarkable 1,650 trillion Aerionian Gold Leaves a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 70,382 Aerionian Gold Leaves, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.
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, and its national religion is Ancient Aerionian Faith.
