The Confederated Republic of Aequiteria is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chief of State Abraham Norrison with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, pith helmet sales, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 8.349 billion Aequiterians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cleastwood. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.9%.

The very strong Aequiterian economy, worth 887 trillion Rounds a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 106,272 Rounds, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 422,354 per year while the poor average 18,035, a ratio of 23.4 to 1.

The military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned spouses, the government is in utter turmoil following the recent abolishment of the tax code, and soldiers' positions are given away by the glint of their bayonets. Crime is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Aequiteria's national animal is the Aequiterian Dragon, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Aequiteria is ranked 50,302nd in the world and 1,842nd in Balder for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 3,411.79 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
