The Holy Aellyrian Empire of Aellyria is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Holy Emperor Andreas Aeylgarn with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and zero percent divorce rate. The democratic, devout population of 2.218 billion Aellyrians 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.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arakas. The average income tax rate is 48.9%.

The strong Aellyrian economy, worth 142 trillion Marks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 64,048 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Panicking criminals no longer flush contraband down the toilet, war criminals are given full state funerals, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, and the housing market has collapsed like an overbaked Brancalandian souffle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aellyria's national animal is the Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Vedism.

Aellyria is ranked 130,067th in the world and 37th in Meillur for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -3.16 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
