Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Øymark of Aeoliland is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Marki Henk with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, state-planned economy, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.34 billion Aeolilandings are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vindøya. The average income tax rate is 99.9%.

The Aeolilandian economy, worth 885 trillion Kroner a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is an impressive 106,215 Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Space shuttles are lying silent on the runway till the Space Agency can work out how to fit a creche and a meditation room into their next spacecraft, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", and the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded. Crime is totally unknown. Aeoliland's national animal is the Bjørn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Paganism.

Aeoliland is ranked 18,254th in the world and 79th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Income Equality, scoring 72.73 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
