Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Øymark of Aeoliland is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Marki Henk with an even hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, national health service, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 8.873 billion Aeolilandings enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent 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 99.4%.

The Aeolilandian economy, worth 857 trillion Kroner 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 Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 96,655 Kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Piracy is the nation's most popular pastime, the dartboard at the Aeolilandian Cancer Research Charity bears a picture of Marki Henk's face, all statues and paintings of dogs are being destroyed to avoid offending cat-lovers, and embarrassed police officers wear spandex and carry net guns. 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 117,835th in the world and 139th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 44.74 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
