The Armed Republic of Aengloland is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by the Aenglish Workers' Gemot with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 11.854 billion Aenglish are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Winchester. The average income tax rate is 98.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Aenglish economy, worth a remarkable 1,544 trillion Silver Pennies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is extremely specialized, is mostly made up of the Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is an impressive 130,319 Silver Pennies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dangerous criminals are often 'accidentally' sent on one-way trips to Maxtopia, requests to "pass the salt" are supported by tank divisions, power to the people comes from the barrel of a gun, and kindergartners' favourite dance move is the stop-drop-and-roll. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aengloland's national animal is the Boar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Aengloland is ranked 228th in the world and 10th in Forest for Most Primitive, scoring 443.08 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
