The Kingdom of Aedra is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, zero percent divorce rate, and suspicion of poets. The cynical population of 337 million Aedrans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 24.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Aedran economy, worth 14.1 trillion Elns a year, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 41,877 Elns, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Diagrams of new modems collect dust in patent offices, surveillance cameras are banned, the state believes that children are what you make of them, and divorce is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aedra's national animal is the Wyvern, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aedra is ranked 78,018th in the world and 139th in The Western Isles for Most Influential, scoring 118 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
