|Leader||Sasha Avina von Aeljae|
The Matriarchy of Aeljae is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sasha Avina von Aeljae with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and national health service. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.194 billion Aeljaeans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Elja. The average income tax rate is 86.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Aeljaean economy, worth 372 trillion kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 169,659 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Lion is one of the most popular forenames in Aeljae, relations with Dàguó have warmed from frosty to chilly, bemused citizens are encouraged to sing foreign-language hymns of religions they have never heard of, and wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high. Crime is totally unknown. Aeljae's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
