The Archduchy of Aexalla is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Archduke and Duchess Josť and Katherine with an iron fist, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, hatred of cheese, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.846 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, 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 83.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Aexallish economy, worth 638 trillion Drokmyns a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Gambling industry. Average income is 81,394 Drokmyns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Pro-democracy protesters are shot on sight by state police, the government is suspected of mass disappearing dissidents both at home and abroad, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, and record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been reported. 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 10th in Arctic and 20,478th in the world for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 132 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
