The United Federal Commonwealths of Aquestia is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by President Irving Morrell with an even hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.432 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%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Automobile Manufacturing and Gambling.

Political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, the government is sending thousands of citizens overseas to defend a square mile of land, the Hanging Gardens account for half of Freedus's water use, and extreme political groups are outlawed. 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 Samothrace and 48,550th in the world for Largest Public Transport Department, scoring 17 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
