The United Federal Commonwealths of Aquestia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by President Eric Daniello with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls. The compassionate, intelligent population of 4.561 billion Aquestians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Commerce, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Freedus. The average income tax rate is 63%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Automobile Manufacturing and Gambling.

Administrative districts are increasingly defined by their taste in housing architecture, the government has taken a 'sort it out yourselves' approach to fighting malaria, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and coalition governments are essential to passing new laws. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aquestia's national animal is the Killer Whale, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, its national religion is Piratese, and its currency is the Bull.

Aquestia is ranked 5th in Lucerna and 8,302nd in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 37 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
