The Archduchy of Aexalla is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Archduke and Duchess Josť and Katherine with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, parental licensing program, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.737 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 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 87.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Aexallish economy, worth 777 trillion Drokmyns a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is 88,973 Drokmyns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
People are now classified as male, female, or genderqueer, birth rates have hit an all-time low, a crusade against barbaric religious practices has begun, and students athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned Kodiak Bearball fields. 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 9th in Arctic and 17,350th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring 185 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
