The Wandering Space Creatures of Aeiouia is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Eldest Sibling Mia with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and keen interest in outer space. The democratic population of 11.549 billion Descendants hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Old Place. The average income tax rate is 69.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Descendant economy, worth a remarkable 1,065 trillion Mineral Cubes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Pizza Delivery, and Tourism. Average income is 92,254 Mineral Cubes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, construction of the Really Big Hadron Collider is underway, leather-clad individuals can be seen walking their slaves in public parks, and only AI know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aeiouia's national animal is the Critter, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Aeiouia is ranked 144,911th in the world and 20th in Weyard for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -5.33 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
