Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Archduchy of Aexalla is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Archduke and Duchess Josť and Katherine with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, rampant corporate plagiarism, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.015 billion Aexallans 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, moralistic, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanguis. The average income tax rate is 87.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aexallish economy, worth 696 trillion Drokmyns a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Gambling industry. Average income is 86,927 Drokmyns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals, the nation's new foreign policy of 'very disproportionate retribution' has its neighbors on edge, the populace lives in fear of painful execution for minor offences, and the sound of wooden legs echo throughout Aexalla after the recent introduction of the Foot Tax. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aexalla's national animal is the Kodiak Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Church of Aexalla.

Aexalla is ranked 36th in Arctic and 118,560th in the world for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring -8 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
