The Modern Aristocracy of Eiffel is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Society Council with an iron fist, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.231 billion Eiffelians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Law & Order, although Defence and Commerce are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Raxus. The average income tax rate is 89%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.

Sociologists can charge whatever fee they like as the nation tried to find itself, newspapers cannot report anything about politicians without their explicit consent, politicians are losing their jobs in a plan to make the government 'leaner and fitter', and prenuptial contracts have replaced diamond rings in marriage proposals. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Eiffel's national animal is the Volus, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Siari, and its currency is the Society Note.

Eiffel is ranked 22nd in Albion and 13,156th in the world for Rudest Citizens, with 24.9 Insults Per Minute (net).
